Ensembles in Ealing and beyond

So, you’ve starting learning a musical instrument and you are relishing the challenge of learning all the fascinating aspects this comes with.  Ensemble playing is an essential part of learning to play a musical instrument; helping with different technical and musical aspects of instrumental playing as well as being a great opportunity to meet other musicians.
