Education, Outreach and Coaching
Manor House String Quartet are committed to bringing high quality, professional chamber music into the community - by offering workshops or tailor made short concerts to groups of people who might not otherwise get the chance to discover classical music.
The String Quartet offer conversational recitals where we can talk informally about the works we are about to perform, or fun educational workshops for schools, hospitals, senior citizens groups, arts festivals or community projects, keeping the concerts light and entertaining. Manor House Music also perform regularly in rural churches around Buckinghamshire. This makes classical music accessible to those people for whom travel into a town or city may prove difficult.
For those studying music or who wish to improve their own chamber ensemble skills, we are happy to come along and offer chamber music coaching or individual advice on all aspects of performing music - either for established ensembles or groups who wish to have lessons from experienced professionals and develop the skill of playing music together with others.
As many of the players within the group also teach privately or at the London music colleges, we are an experienced educational string quartet, offering coaching at different levels and happy to work with individual needs.
If you are interested in hosting a church concert, educational workshop, classical concert for children, chamber music course or require live music for a community project, please do contact us to discuss your ideas or string quartet hire.
Dear Vaughan, We wanted to write and say a huge thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special. You played beautifully and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music, both during the ceremony and the drinks reception. Your repertoire is extremely impressive and it was lovely to be able to choose such a variety of music for our guests to enjoy. Thank you also for all your help leading up to the day. It makes such a difference to have real confidence in the people you are working with. Best wishes, Kathryn and Michael (Wedding at Oakham Castle
