An Introduction to YLSS…

If you are an adult learner of the violin, viola, cello or bass, or played a string instrument at school and would like to start again, playing with a group with adults of similar standard, then YLSS is for you. You don’t have to audition, we just want to encourage you to play music.

YLSS at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival

YLSS is a learning string orchestra tutored by top class professional musicians. (Read more about our tutors here.) We play string music of all styles and periods from the baroque and earlier to the present day. Our music is carefully chosen to suit the abilities of the group, and sectional rehearsals ensure that everyone gets  guidance. Simplified parts are often available so that you can join in even if you are at an early stage of study on your instrument. Our players enjoy learning in a supportive, non-competitive and friendly atmosphere.
