Junior Academy staff

Junior Academy teachers are leading professional musicians who combine active performing careers with the challenge of helping young players, singers and composers to fulfill their potential and musical ambitions. Many also teach on the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes at the Academy and bring enormous experience of teaching and performance to their Junior Academy students.
