    The 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, made possible through a grant from the Michael Watson Charitable Trust. Based within the Learning department at Wigmore Hall, the Trainee Music Leader will be supported by the Head of Learning and Programme Manager: Schools and Early Years, as well as through regular meetings with an external mentor.

    Candidates should have musical training to graduate level or equivalent, and have some existing music workshop leading experience, preferably beyond that explored through their own education.

    We welcome applications from individuals from a broad range of musical genres and backgrounds.
