Violin meets loop pedal and beat boxing

Seniors were treated to a special assembly this week with a visit from violinist and composer, Joel Grainger. He trained as a classical musician but decided to branch out from the conventional route and broaden his range of styles to include pop, jazz and folk. As well as speaking and performing at TEDx in London he has showcased his live looping set on BBC 1’s ‘The One Show’.
