Violin Masterclass

On Thursday 29th of November The EGS music department took a group of students to attend a violin masterclass with the amazing Jeanine Thorpe at Mount House School in Hadley Wood.

Our students had the unique chance to get 1:1 advice from Jeanine -within minutes of working with her, the students had noticeably improved and they each left the session with some important practice points.

The day was capped off by an incredible show of virtuosity, musicality and passion displayed by Jeanine in an evening recital.

As we returned to school we were all left with a sense of bemusement, enthusiasm and inspiration.

It was a trip we will not be forgetting for quite a while.
