I received great guidance with my artistic direction and musicianship skills whilst I was constantly encouraged to develop and perform new projects. Trinity [Laban] also presented me with a great network of musicians, (both teachers and peers), and it really launched me in to a world of new opportunities.Emilia Mårtensson
