The Trinity College London Junior Fellowships in Piano Accompaniment provide a valuable opportunity for talented young pianists embarking on a professional career to gain experience and to further develop their performance skills.
Through working with vocal, string, woodwind and brass students, successful applicants will gain accompaniment experience in a variety of contexts. Two tax-free bursaries, each to the value of £8,000, will be available for the 2020/21 academic year to help defray the cost of any tuition undertaken during the academic year of their tenure.
Junior Fellows in Piano Accompaniment are required to mentor and accompany instrumental and vocal students at Trinity Laban. This will also include some involvement in departmental classes, examinations, one-to-one lessons and other sessions as agreed. Attendance is likely to be in the region of 400 hours over the year, primarily during the Music Faculty’s 35 designated teaching weeks. The Junior Fellows in Piano Accompaniment will report to the Head of the department to which they are assigned, and to the leader of the Junior Fellowship programmes.
Applicants will need to be able to demonstrate substantial relevant experience, with a wide range of competencies and experience in piano accompaniment and duo work, as well as advanced proficiency in sight-reading. They should expect to contribute and add value to the Conservatoire community as well as pursuing their own careers. Junior Fellows are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities to further their own professional development by arranging lessons with members of Trinity Laban’s teaching staff.
Please also note that Junior Fellowship schemes are not eligible for Tier 4 student visas. All applicants need to have valid work permits/visas for the United Kingdom covering the full period of the fellowship prior to applying.
