The first Tuesday of each month is an open session, where newcomers can try an instrument and meet the players. No previous musical experience is necessary and most of our group were complete beginners when they first came along. We even provide the instruments: choose violin, viola or cello - or try all three! The sessions are facilitated by professional cellist and Goldsmiths-trained music leader Isabel Emerson, and kindly supported by the Brighthelm Small Grants Scheme. Cost: the first session's FREE - come and try us out! If you want to join Silver Strings, it's £12/wk (payable monthly) thereafter, inclusive of instrument use.

Nuisance continues from The Waste Transfer Station. Please phone if you smell unreasonable odour so that we can continue to highlight:
[A] the unsuitable location at Hollingdean Depot for processing food waste so near to residents homes and gardens
[B] the unsuitable building design of the Waste Transfer Station: i.e. not fit for purpose as it cannot prevent escapes of dust particles and odour.
The operating licence issued by The Environment Agency also covers unreasonable noise. Phone them about this and not The Council (Veolia's main client).
Please see events listings for music currently on. Many music venues re-open in the spring.
Learn a musical instrument - since the time of the Prince Regent, Brighton has gained a reputation for music teaching and performance. The abundance of teachers in our city means that it is easy to find help in learning an instrument.
