Education & Mentorship

Muses Trio members have been active as educators for around thirty years, working in schools, Topology, Creative Boot Camps, community outreach projects, presenting in national conferences, one-on-one consultations, group settings at beginner and advanced level, tutorials, and collaborating with composers and artists from other genres.

We recognise the importance of ongoing professional development and coaching, no matter the level, as we ourselves are committed to ongoing growth as teaching artists.  We also seek to support women performers and composers in realising their chosen pathways in the arts.  In our work preparing new commissions, we appreciate the importance of the invaluable feedback loop between composer and performers, and can help composers fast-track the creative process by facilitating a reading, feedback, and informal or studio recording session of new works.


The Muses Trio are available for the following:


For composers:

Read through sessions of new scores. These may take various forms dependent on budget and availability, such as:

  • Read through and feedback from the Muses, via Zoom or in person
  • Professional video and editing to create a digital asset for your YouTube channel  / audition / Vimeo etc
  • Professional recording of your work, for release on Spotify etc. A great example of this is Natalie Nicholas Music for Calm and Catharsis Suite, released on Spotify in 2020
