The instruments

We have a choice of three instruments in the string programme; the violin, the viola and the cello.


Highest in pitch

Small in size. Brilliant and virtuosic. The most popular instrument. Relatively easy to switch to viola.

Tutor: Lorenz Weston Salzer

Pitched between the violin and the cello

Slightly larger than the violin, pitched an octave up from the cello. Similar playing technique to the violin. Beautiful, rich tone.

Tutor: Iselta Allison

Lowest in pitch.

Different posture; instrument is held between legs. Warm, grunty sound.

Tutor: Joanna Park
