Richard Carne Intercollegiate String Quartet Competition
Royal Greenwich String Quartet Festival, Saturday 24 April
The Richard Carne Intercollegiate String Quartet Competition occupied a prime position in this year’s Royal Greenwich String Quartet Festival. Generously funded by the Richard Carne Trust and offering substantial prizes to the winners of the two categories (best overall performance and best performance of the set work) this event regularly attracts the cream of young string quartets from all major UK conservatoires. This year the ensembles from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama unfortunately had to withdraw at the last minute due to personal circumstances, but all other six schools were represented by their chosen quartet champions.
Working as part of Trinity Laban’s Learning & Participation (Dance) team means that I get to see a variety of teaching practices. We work in all sorts of settings and each of our wonderful teachers brings their own personality and teaching style to their classes.
While on the surface every teacher’s practice may appear very different from the next, core underlying principles and knowledge can be found embedded throughout their work. One such example is their ability to teach safely and effectively which helps to safeguard their participants from injury in the present and future, while also promoting enhanced potential.
So, what are the key elements of safe practice that we need to be aware of when teaching dance?
Trinity Laban recently hosted the second day of Dance UK’s industry wide conference, ‘The Future: new ideas, new inspirations’.
This exciting event, provided an opportunity for a diverse range of people from the dance industry to come together and share ideas as never before. As members of the Trinity Laban Health Team, Rachel Emms and Giovanna Piccolo and talk about their experience of the conference and discuss some of their personal highlights.

With the Royal Greenwich String Quartet Festival looming, I’ve been swotting up on my String Quartet rep. Despite the fact that there is a tonne of String Quartet music written for film out there, I couldn’t help but listen to quartet arrangements of soundtracks. Here are my favourite five (and why I love them so much) Continue reading
