In September, seven musicians began training on the Spitalfields Music year-long Trainee Music Leader Scheme with us and our six national partners; Welsh National Opera, LSO Discovery, Opera North, Orchestras Live, Multi-Story Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia.
With funding from Help Musicians UK’s National Grants Programme, over the course of a year the trainees will gain skills through practical experience, mentoring and training. Find out more about past Trainee Music Leaders’ experience on the programme, with blog posts by Lauren Brant, Kate Howden and Leanne Sedin (linked below).
A further 23 musicians are currently taking part in Skills Lab. The three days of specialist training underpins the Trainee Music Leader scheme and is delivered by outstanding music leaders in the field.
Applications for the 2020/21 Trainee Music Leader scheme and Skills Lab will be open in September 2020. Please contact Gail (ku.gro.cisumsdleiflatips@liag) to sign up for an email alert, or if you have any questions about the scheme.
