Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is a forward thinking, contemporary and world-class Higher Education Institution with a vision to redefine the conservatoire for the 21st century. At the leading edge of music and dance training, it provides specialist education of the highest quality, which reflects the increasingly collaborative world of artistic practice. Trinity Laban supports the lifelong career development of students and professional performing artists, and offers a wide range of learning, participation and career development opportunities for young and old alike.
The Faculty of Music accounts for around 600 of the higher education (HE) students within Trinity Laban and delivers programmes of study for students from pre-degree to doctoral levels through an innovative combination of individual, small group, ensemble and academic studies. Delivering over 350 student performances each year in a wide variety of concert venues across London, the South East and beyond, alongside a wide range of other audience engagement activities, the Faculty seeks to impart in its students the skills needed for a dynamic and sustainable career in the music profession.
At the heart of the Faculty of Music is the Keyboard Department, which comprises more than 100 HE students and over 20 teaching staff. The Department is developing an ever-increasing worldwide reputation for excellence: students and alumni are attaining significant competition successes and building successful careers, and more and more students are selecting Trinity Laban as their conservatoire study destination of choice.
Following the announcement of the resignation of Peter Tuite in order to resume his performing and recording career, the Faculty of Music wishes to recruit a dynamic and respected musician and educator to the post of Head of Keyboard.
If successful, you will provide inspiration, vision and leadership for the department, and will design, deliver and develop the department’s various learning opportunities. You will be responsible for recruiting students; for recruiting, managing and developing Trinity Laban’s exceptional teaching staff; for planning an outstanding, internationally recognised series of concerts, masterclasses and events; and for developing initiatives and partnerships both within Trinity Laban and externally.
Educated to degree-level or equivalent, you will have extensive and proven music / music education leadership experience (ideally including team, budget and project management), outstanding communication and organisational abilities, an extensive professional network and performance profile, excellent IT skills and the capability to deal with a busy and varied workload, within a highly creative environment. Most significantly, you will have the vision and passion to engage with the outstanding musicians of tomorrow.
