Area of Work

The Progressive Conservatoire: Responding to the evolving educational needs of musicians, viewed through the critical disability model.


Stephanie Oatridge has appeared in numerous television and radio broadcasts, performing at celebrated concert venues across Europe. From the West End to ensembles such as the Hanover Band and Academy of Ancient Music, Stephanie enjoys a busy and varied freelance career which spans both modern and period instruments. Chamber music features prominently in her performance engagements. With guitarist Adam Brown, the duo dismantles boundaries between classical and popular traditions, performing works from the Iberian and Latin-American musical narrative.

Recipient of the Royal Academy of Music Friends’ Development Award and a finalist for the Deutsche Bank Award, Stephanie has subsequently been awarded Associate of the Royal Academy of Music, in recognition of her extensive contribution to the music profession.

Having trained as a running coach with England Athletics, this has led to PhD research at Trinity Laban into peak performance and the possibilities for a progressive conservatoire.
