Whether you aspire to be a chamber musician, soloist, orchestral or ensemble player, generative artist, or teacher, our carefully designed training prepares you for anything the professional world might throw at you. Through top class training and a supportive, highly creative environment, we will help you to excel and become ever more confident performing in a range of contexts, from concert platform and opera house to studio, festival or club.
Our teaching staff are drawn from the very best artists working in and around London and internationally. Your dedicated Principal Study teacher will provide individual tuition on a weekly basis as well as group tuition. Undergraduate students will also be able to enhance their musicianship through additional Principal Study Enhancement lessons, which include opportunities to undertake related or complementary study of a period instrument, jazz or a related instrument, such as viola for violinists.
Weekly Departmental classes are designed to support your Principal Study and equip you for the diverse world of professional music making. Our staff provide a wealth of coaching opportunities and specialist expertise, and the tutorial classes cover subjects ranging from orchestral extracts and audition skills to teaching methods, historically informed performance, and issues of healthy practice and performance.
Chamber music is a central focus of string training at Trinity Laban, with frequent coaching led by our internationally acclaimed staff, all of whom regularly perform in the country's leading ensembles. We are fortunate to have resident chamber groups who regularly give concerts and masterclasses. Postgraduate students also have the opportunity to play in a chamber music setting with teaching staff in Side by Side projects.
Your learning is also enhanced by regular visits from acclaimed international performers, who share their skills and experience in our masterclass series. Recent visiting artists have included: Ivry Gitlis, Tasmin Little, Ernst Kovacic, Gyorgy Pauk, Gordan Nikolich, Stephanie Gonley, Walter Verdehr and Mateja Marinkovic.
