Apply to become a music examiner or marker


Applications for the following two Trinity roles are currently open.

 

Music Examiner role

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

Are you able to offer us at least 3 weeks’ availability each year, including June and November?

If so, read on…


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). As Trinity assess in over 60 countries, we particularly welcome applications from people who are able to undertake longer international tours (of up to 4 weeks). 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.

Music Theory Marker role

Trinity College London is seeking individuals to join our panel of Music Theory exam markers. 


Working from home, our Markers assess examination scripts against a pre-defined mark scheme and with reference to our Music Theory syllabus at all grades (Grades 1-8). Music Theory exams take place twice a year in May and November, and marking takes place 3-4 weeks following the exam.

To be eligible to apply to become a Music Theory Marker for Trinity you need to:

  • be resident in the UK
  • be available to mark for three weeks following the two annual exam dates in May and November
  • attend a one day standardisation event in London prior to each marking session
