Student Profile(s)

Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour, Composer

1197.png Trinity Laban’s wide-ranging courses enabled me to expand my musical knowledge beyond the confines of a degree. The accessibility to all professors enabled me to work with Sioned Williams, and this resulted in a commission from the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a harp concerto. What better way to start a career.


Adam Waldmann, Saxophone

1198.png Studying at Trinity Laban offered me a great chance to study under some of the country’s most highly regarded educators and musicians. The Jazz Department provided me with some invaluable tools, encouragement and knowledge that I will always be grateful for.


George–Emmanuel Lazaridis, Piano

1199.png "Trinity Laban is bursting with life and incorporates some of the most sought after professors in the UK. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to the young generation of musicians and feel proud to be a graduate myself."


Samuel Burstin, Viola

1200.png My time at Trinity Laban gave me a breadth of musical experiences that have been vital to my progress as a violinist and as a musician. The range of musical performance, specialist tuition and personal freedom I enjoyed there was wonderful, and that, allied to the beautiful setting of the Conservatoire in the heart of Greenwich, allowed me space to grow and develop musically.


Fiona Kelly, Flute

1201.png When I decided I wanted to study in London I realized that Anna Noakes was definitely the perfect match for me. I spent four fantastic years with her. As well as being an amaxing player and teacher, she has unbelievable energy and a fantastic sense of humour. I wouldn’t be halfthe player I am without her unbelievable support and guidance. There was also a terrific flute department, and wonderful, inspirational and supportive students. Trinity Laban was exactly the kind of environment I needed to be in.
