The Spitalfields Music Trainee Music Leader Scheme is a paid, practical training programme for musicians of all genres who are passionate about creative music making in community settings. The Trainee Music Leader Scheme is one of the most prestigious and well-respected schemes of its kind. Since its inception in 2003, many of the UK’s foremost workshop leaders have trained on the scheme and credit it with giving them the broad base of experience, skills and contacts to develop their successful careers in the music education sector.
This year, five trainees will have the opportunity to develop their music leadership skills through hands-on experience and training and learn from experienced music leaders in a supportive professional environment. We will once again be working with our national partners: Britten Pears Arts, Orchestras Live and Southbank Sinfonia to recruit five trainees from across the UK for a 10-month traineeship, running between October 2022 and July 2023.
Full information on the scheme and all of the information needed to apply can be found on our website: Trainee Music Leader Scheme – Spitalfields Music
There will be an online Q&A session taking place this Thursday, 22nd September, between 12.30pm & 1.30pm, hosted by all four national partners, for musicians interested in applying to the scheme. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
