The ATCL in Instrumental/Vocal Teaching is the first-level teaching diploma offered by Trinity College, London. It comprises of two main elements:

  1. Written Submission (4,000 words including an analysis of experience as a learner; observations of other teachers; case studies of learning experience; and a portfolio of original teaching resources);
  2. Viva Voce (including a 15 minute spoken presentation; initiative test of teaching skills; and a viva voce discussion);

How can David help?

Written Submissions:

  • Advice on structuring the observations and case studies;
  • Recommend reading, resources and other materials relating to the submissions;
  • Read and give feedback on drafts of the submissions;
  • Give general advice on academic writing, presentation and referencing.

Viva Voce:

  • Advise on preparing the presentation;
  • Providing sample questions based on applicable repertoire pieces and feedback on answers;
  • General advice about the Viva discussion;

All mentoring is tailored to the individual and is not a course of study. There are no set course materials, rather, David is guided by your individual needs and requirements.
