Singer, Songwriter and Pianist
Studying at Trinity [Laban] was a positive experience, which allowed me to grow as a complete musician and singer. There were many exciting performance and composition opportunities available, which gave me the confidence to know that I had the skillset to perform in many varied environments.Paola Vera
