transforming young lives and communities through music

The Mayor of Islington's Charity 2015/16

Welcome to the Hub @ AMSI


The Hub at AMSI has been in full operation since September 2011. Every Wednesday, children from six primary schools (Duncombe, Grafton, Montem, St. Marks CofE, Robert Blair and Pakeman) attend Islington Arts & Media School, and pupils from Ashmount joined us in January 2016.


There are three performance groups at the Hub: Symphony Orchestra, String Orchestra, Wind Band. A typical Hub session will involve an instrumental lesson, a singing / instrumental workshop, a group section focussing on either composition, music theory, or group performance, and an orchestra rehearsal.


Each child is learning their instrument at school with the rest of their class, and has made the commitment to attend the Hub for further tuition. There are currently 12 members of staff at AMSI, all with a wide range of performing and teaching experience.
