Please note that our AGM will take place on Zoom on Sunday 18th February at 8 pm. The Trustees have decided to keep the online format in order to facilitate participation from all around the country. We very much hope to see you there. 

There is no charge but please do book a ticket so you are sent the Zoom link. This can be done at the bottom of this page.

Just before, at 7 pm, there will be a BSMA talk given by Kimberley Wong, Kate Conway and Guillem Calvo entitled ‘Connecting to the Wider World’, which will explore the use of Social media in music education. This will be particularly useful for teachers and trainees. Do come to that too!

Guillem Calvo Martínez de Albéniz:

Guillem Calvo is a violinist and Suzuki Teacher Trainer based in London, although his Suzuki journey started in Barcelona before the age of 3! After completing his studies with Suzuki Teacher Albert Sarrias and later at the Barcelona Conservatori del Liceu, he moved to the UK to study violin under Yossi Zivoni at the Royal College of Music and masters with Shmuel Ashkensasi at the Musikhochschule in Lübeck, while also training as a Suzuki Teacher in the UK.

Since then, Guillem has been sharing his passion for performing as a freelance musician, with his teaching and training new teachers in the Suzuki Method. He runs a busy teaching studio, gives talks and workshops around Europe and runs his own online training course Insight Suzuki.

He has performed under prestigious conductors like Sir Colin Davis and Bernard Haitink in renowned orchestras like the London Symphony Orchestra with whom he debuted as a soloist in 2009. He is a member of the Insieme Ensemble in London, and the Albeniz Ensemble, with whom he organises and performs at the Lautada Music Festival in the north of Spain.

Kate Conway:

I started Suzuki Hub because I care passionately about offering the wonderful Suzuki approach to as many different kinds of people as possible. As a social enterprise we are offering low-cost lessons to low-income families, and as a teacher I try to help my students learn in as many different ways as I can. I love the violin and I want everyone else to love it too.

You can find my YouTube channel with many videos for Suzuki teachers, parents and students here. Please subscribe as it helps other people find my channel. 

As well as running Suzuki Hub I am the director of Suzuki in Schools which runs 12 Suzuki violin programmes in London state schools. You can email me to find out more. I also run the Hackney Proms, a charity which brings brilliant live music to people of all ages around the borough. As a violinist I perform professionally in and around London, in loads of different ways, from classical to pop and loads of places in between. Sign up to our mailing list at the bottom of the Suzuki Hub page to find out when I’m performing.
