Our Trainee Music Leader scheme is a unique opportunity for a musician to develop their workshop leadership skills in the context of our 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, made possible through a grant from the Michael Watson Charitable Trust.
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to lead a Trainee Music Leader scheme in our 2020/21 season. Watch this space for future training and development opportunities.
'Being the Trainee Music Leader… has been an experience rich in opportunity and surprisingly rare in its flexibility, bespoke nature and financial support. Encouraged and supported by an inspiring team at Wigmore Hall, I have been able to assist on a variety of projects in schools, care homes and community centres, learning from highly skilled music leaders and ultimately being able to carve out my own path of development throughout the year.Georgia Duncan, Trainee Music Leader 2016/17
