Trinity Laban welcomed 21 new students to the Conservatoire's Faculty of Music in February as part of the newly accredited Teaching Musician programme - a postgraduate certificate and diploma in music education practice.
The Teaching Musician is the only accredited, postgraduate music education professional development programme in the UK that is open to all musicians working in any educational setting; and was fully subscribed in just its first year.
Offering strands in both Instrumental and Vocal Teaching and Creative Education Practice it is designed for practitioners looking for a sustained training programme alongside a professional career. The programme will develop practical and reflective skills within a dynamic community of practice.
Programme Leader Tim Palmer said:
"This is an exciting new departure for Trinity Laban - it is our first blended learning programme, our first accredited Continuing Professional Development offering, and the first programme that is a partnership between the Academic Department and Learning and Participation (Music).
"We are opening channels for international delivery of the training, and the first weekend, which was a resounding success, demonstrates that there is a significant market for this type of flexible and vocational programme."
