The Strings Department provides a structured framework for undergraduate and postgraduate study.
During your time with us, you will receive intensive training in the crucial disciplines of solo performance, chamber music and orchestral playing. We will nurture your talent and help you to become a versatile, creative and practical musician.
Our highly distinguished professors and visiting professors range in age from their 20s to their 80s, encompassing an incredible breadth of knowledge and boasting an extraordinary musical lineage.
Students have access to instruments from the Academy Museum’s extensive collection, from newly minted modern instruments to ‘golden-period’ Stradivari violins. The Academy is unique in also having a professional team of luthiers permanently on site.
Our approach is to create grounded, rounded musicians whose progression into the music profession is natural, informed and positive.
