Instrument Shift

Instrument Shift

Introducing 'Instrument Shift', a new small group ensemble for young people who are interested in learning the Tuba, French Horn and Saxophone! It's suitable for children who have had at least one year of lessons on any brass instrument, clarinet or flute, and is targeted towards pupils who attend, or previously attended a Nottingham City Primary School.

What will sessions look like?

Each session would be an hour long, with half the lesson spent in smaller instrument groups and the last half an hour rehearsing together.

When: Fridays, 4:30PM - 5:30PM

Where: Nottingham Cathedral, N Circus St, Nottingham NG1 5AE
