Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is a forward thinking, contemporary and world-class Higher Education Institution with a vision to redefine the conservatoire for the 21st century. At the leading edge of music and dance training, it provides specialist education of the highest quality, which reflects the increasingly collaborative world of artistic practice and supports the lifelong career development of students and professional performing artists as well as a wide range of learning, participation and career development opportunities for young and old alike.

The Faculty of Music accounts for around 700 of the higher education (HE) students within Trinity Laban and delivers programmes of study for students from pre-degree to doctoral levels through an innovative combination of individual, small group, ensemble and academic studies. Delivering over 350 student performances each year in a wide variety of concert venues across London, the South East and beyond, alongside a wide range of other audience engagement activities, the Faculty seeks to impart in its students the skills needed for a dynamic and sustainable career in the music profession.
