Trinity Laban is delighted to announce the appointment of respected teacher, mentor and researcher Dr David Baker to its acclaimed programme for music teachers.

In September, David will be taking up his new post as Module Leader and Teacher in Instrumental and Vocal Teaching on Trinity Laban’s PG Cert/Dip programme, "The Teaching Musician”. The Teaching Musician offers a flexible, accredited postgraduate programme of study for experienced, practising music teachers. It combines intensive training weekends at Trinity Laban’s world class Faculty of Music in Greenwich with reflective, distance learning. Having launched in 2014, this year the programme welcomes its second cohort of teachers from across the UK and beyond, from early years practitioners to those in higher education.

Dr David Baker is a trumpeter with extensive experience as an instrumental and classroom teacher, and as a mentor to music teachers on the University of Reading’s MA in Instrumental Teaching. A researcher and published author, David is currently Principal Investigator on the Institute of Education for the AHRC-funded research project “Visually-impaired Musician’s Lives”, working with Lucy Green (co-investigator) and in partnership with the Royal Academy of Music and Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).
