Trinity launches Talk Trinity

14 Jul 2017

Trinity has recently launched a new blog series, Talk Trinity. Exploring the wider thinking and values that underpin everything we do. We hope that these blog posts will spark thought and discussion amongst the learning community, and so encourage you to share the posts, and comment on them with your thoughts.

Take a look at our first two pieces:

Trinity’s lead senior examiner, Peter Wild, talks about the values that underpinned the creation of our new Piano 2018-2020 syllabus.

‘The new syllabus covers a vast array of musical styles. Rather than narrow choice by genre we leave the choices to teachers and pupils so they can personalise the experience to make it relevant and engaging for them’.
