Inspired By Classical Music

Our kindergarten, prep and grade 7 students got quite a treat when we got a visit by Mr. Sam West, the violinist from London, of Jamaican parentage. Sam West is well known and respected within the UK music scene – especially for his work as a vocal trainer to contemporary singers. His vocal work is varied and involves coaching. Sam’s formal training began with violin lessons, in 1974 at the age of 12. He progressed quickly, culminating in a valuable period of full time study at The Royal College of Music, London. At the same time, Sam could often be found playing the piano and organ in churches, and directing church choirs. His ‘classical’ training, and gospel background, has allowed him to view music broadly, and work with a wide range of artists of various styles.
