Fun Times in Muirhouse

Another term of the Tuesday Hub at North Edinburgh Arts is in full swing! Now in its 6th year, the Hub brings together young people aged 10-18 with a team of tutors for the opportunity to try learning instruments, singing, song-writing, rapping… and sometimes even dancing!

This term we’ve been working on some great songs – Someone You Loved by Lewis Capaldi, Thunder by Imagine Dragons and I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston. It’s been fantastic to see so much enthusiasm and talent, both from our regulars and from those who have come for the first time this term. Some highlights include:

  • Rhys, Sarah, Claire and Megan forming a tutor band to perform a jazzed up version of Umbrella by Rihanna.
  • A crowd of 10 young people spontaneously jumping to the stage to dance along to Mark* singing Giant by Calvin Harris.
  • Our volunteer Matthew helping participants try out vocal sampling on the iPad and performing with this in the song Thunder.
  • The bass guitar section showing off having learnt to play the Thomas the Tank Engine theme.

Here’s to many more musical adventures to be had before our end of term performance on 31st March at North Edinburgh Arts. Bring it on!

The Hub runs from 6-8pm at North Edinburgh Arts in Muirhouse on Tuesdays during term time. All 10-18 years are welcome to drop in, regardless of musical experience. Come along and join the fun! – Jenny, Tinderbox Hub Lead Tutor.
