Stuart Whatmore

Music Educator


My time at Trinity [Laban] exposed me to high-quality teaching alongside exceptional music making and allowed me to develop essential life-skills. It provided a springboard for my career into music education which is focused on ensuring an equality of offer for all pupils to access outstanding musical opportunities. Trinity [Laban] is a fantastic institution!
