Rebecca Allen

President at EMI Records


LTCL - 1993
GTCL - 1995

I look back at the years I spent studying at Trinity as some of the most important & formative years of my life. It was an incredibly fulfilling experience and helped me discover the characteristics about myself that I could then utilise to start a career within music. Being a professional musician wasn’t something I ever wanted to do but fortunately Trinity understood the bigger picture and helped me to focus on other incredibly important areas within Music & Arts Management. Their ethos was so refreshing!
