Classical & Jazz Examiners

As a music professional, could your expertise, passion and guidance help to shape the next generation of music makers internationally?

At Trinity College London, we see a musical education as an intensely personal journey. Our Classical & Jazz assessments look to explore identity, interpretation and creativity as much as proficiency and technique, which is why we say the exam room is the performance, the examiner the audience.

This approach gives our examiners extraordinary opportunities to share in the music making of people from around the world. Even more powerfully, your expert feedback can play a profound role in shaping their learning.

Who are our examiners?

We look for experienced classical or jazz music professionals – teachers and performers – flexible enough in their arrangements to travel around and beyond the UK for a minimum of 3 weeks a year, including a full week during each peak UK examining period (June and November). All our examiners are independent, freelance, self-employed individuals.

Why work with us?

By delivering our highly regarded assessments, you’ll be upholding a world-leading learning brand. Meanwhile the experience you gain will be rewarding, personally, professionally and financially.
