Strings and Orchestras

The Strings and Orchestras faculty is a thriving department which includes some of LSF’s youngest and oldest students. It incorporates bowed string players as well as harpists and electric and classical guitarists.


All FFD Y2 children receive a weekly whole class violin or cello lesson which is delivered via the highly acclaimed Kodaly based ‘Colourstrings’ approach. We have ensembles to suit every age and stage from our large Y3 cello and violin classes right through to our 50 strong Symphony Orchestra not forgetting our Y2 Parents Class. Recent and upcoming highlights for this faculty include a workshop with International  Baroque Violin expert Rachel Podger, concerts with The Orchestra of the Swan, masterclasses with Julian Loyd-Webber and participation in Birmingham Conservatoire’s String Days. National success has seen current and recent students from the faculty gain places at RNCM and RCM and Birmingham Conservatoire junior school. Orchestral membership of students includes the National Youth Orchestra, National Children’s Orchestra and the National String Orchestra as well as our several of our violinists and cellists holding principle seats in the Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra.
