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.
We are delighted that our 2021/22 Trainee Music Leader is violinist Inês Delgado. You can read more about Inês and our other Pathways artists for 2021/22 here. Applications for our 2022/23 Trainee Music Leader are due to open in May 2022.
'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
