Junior Fellowship in Piano Accompaniment
“I am honoured to have been offered the Junior Fellowship at Trinity Laban for the 2019/2020 academic year. There is nothing more inspirational and educational than working in such a vibrant community of talented musicians and I'm sure that this will be an extremely exciting and challenging time. I'm hugely looking forward to working with and supporting young artists.”Aleksandra Myslek
