Leo Richardson

Jazz Tenor Saxophonist

Music

My time at Trinity Laban was invaluable. Having the opportunity to be surrounded by so many like-minded people was amazing. Studying at this prestigious place has most certainly shaped my musicality and helped me to achieve what I have to date. If I could do it all again, I would in a heartbeat.
