Exeter Junior Orchestra (EJO) is part of the ECO group and is available to those children who are starting to learn a standard orchestral instrument. Children will need to be able to read music.

Not only does it give new starters the opportunity to play as part of a group but teaches them how to follow a conductor, listen to others, counting skills - disciplines they may not put into practice in an individual music lesson.

The aim of the group is to give the confidence to play and perform together and to then move up to ECO in the future. EJO are invited to join the full orchestra for one or two pieces in each concert depending on their readiness. 

The group meets every Saturday during term time in St Leonard's Primary School in Exeter  11am - 12pm. The cost is £20 per term.

The group is directed by ECO's String tutor; Helen Patterson, who herself was once leader of the orchestra! Please contact Helen for further information at: h.patts10@gmail.com or you can email the orchestra committee on committee@exeterchildrensorchestra.co.uk
