Director of Music
Toby attended Dulwich College (London) as a student, which gave him many wonderful musical opportunities. He went on to complete a BA (hons) in Music and an MA (advanced musical studies) from the University of Bristol. He has taught at Sevenoaks School – a leading IB school in the UK – and most recently as Director of Music at Reigate Grammar School – a thriving independent secondary school with a busy music programme. This is his first international role, and he is enjoying life in Shanghai and the global outlook of the College with his young family. Toby has a wide range of performing experience as a trumpeter, singer, conductor and accompanist, having worked on recordings, broadcasts and live performances in many of the UK’s top concert halls and cathedrals. He is a member of the Royal Society of Musicians and an examiner for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
