Upcoming ViolinHubs

What's a ViolinHub?

Who? Where? When?

ViolinHubs are usually led by Simon Hewitt Jones or David Worswick from ViolinSchool, or occasionally by a Guest Tutor.  They take place in Pimlico (or Victoria), London SW1.

ViolinHubs are £29 for members of ViolinSchool (active subscription required), or £39 for violinists without a current ViolinSchool membership.

ViolinHubs run throughout most of the year on Saturdays when the Violin Orchestra is not in session.

Biscuits

Mmmm. Biscults. We like biscuits.

ViolinHubs are our popular Saturday afternoon meetup sessions in London, where we creatively explore aspects of our violin playing. 

We generally start with a technical warm up session, then move into a performance class (punctuated only by biscuits). The last hour or so of the session will be dedicated to a repertoire session (playing ensemble music together).

Technical Warm Ups

We work together through a series of warm ups and technical exercises, created according to each player's practice priorities.

We build up complexities of rhythm, bowing technique, sound production, scales... and much much more!

Performance Class

To get really good at performing, you need to practise! Bring along your (optional!) solo and play it to the class.

Get constructive feedback and practice tips on what to improve. Try out your solos before a concert or an exam - or just for fun!

Repertoire Session

The more you play in a group, the easier it becomes. And it's really enjoyable, too!

Each week, we look at a new piece of (multi-level) ensemble music together. Choose a part to learn in advance... or just turn up and sight-read the easier levels - it's up to you!
