Leon Bosch is Professor of Double Bass at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance. He has taught formally since 1985 and developed a four-point accelerated learning system for the instrument.
In his teaching he offers a philosophy of life and an intellectual framework for understanding and expressing the essence of music, encouraging musical virtuosity rather than just mechanical perfection. As well as teaching young people, he also mentors professional colleagues.
As a double bass coach, Leon has worked around the world with groups including the South African National Youth Orchestra, MIAGI Youth Orchestra, I Culture Orchestra and Buskaid, as well as the UK’s National Youth String Orchestra and at Dartington International Summer School.
