Wirral Schools' Music Service ensembles always welcome new players. To be involved in the senior ensembles, young people should be playing to Grade 5 standard or above (or working towards Grade 5). Music centres are open to children and young people of all ages and abilities.
On some instruments, places in the ensembles are limited to make sure that the balance of instruments and sounds is right. Where competition exists for places, young people may be asked to audition.
