About Wigmore Hall Learning

Since 1994, Wigmore Hall's renowned Learning programme has been giving people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities opportunities to take part in creative music making, engaging a broad and diverse audience through innovative creative projects, concerts, workshops and online resources.

We are passionate about the impact music can have on our lives and on our society, and three core values lie at the heart of our programme: creativity, collaboration and equality. These values reflect the spirit of chamber music, and we embody them through quality, co-created music making, through which every voice is heard and equally valued.

We collaborate with a range of community, education, arts, health and social care organisations, working in partnership to engage people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take part.

About the Trainee Music Leader scheme

Our Trainee Music Leader scheme is a unique opportunity for a musician to develop their workshop leadership skills in the context of learning and participation events and projects, working with a diverse range of groups and settings through a structured apprenticeship.

It is an 11-month bursary scheme, based within the Learning department at Wigmore Hall. The Trainee Music Leader will be supported by the Learning Director and an external mentor.
