Philharmonic Friends is a uniquely inclusive youth orchestra as all parts are custom-written for each child’s skill level. We have many years’ experience running mixed-ability enembles and arranging music for children from beginner level right through to very experienced musicians who might have taken high grades on their instruments. Children are fully engaged at any level and experience making music in an inclusive ensemble setting.

Please have a look at some of the examples below and do get in touch if you have any questions. In our clubs so far we have had a fabulous range of instruments, including flutes, recorders, bassoons, trumpets, cornets, violins, cellos, pianos, xylophones, metallophones, guitars. We welcome any of the above or any new additions!
