Last year BCMG was awarded a significant grant to lead a ground-breaking project that will support and develop composing in primary schools. Building on our 20 years of experience working with young people in and out of school, Listen Imagine Compose Primary is a three-year project that will see us work with children, teachers and composers in 6 Birmingham and 3 Bristol primary schools to better understand how children compose and progress as composers. A partnership between BCMG, Sound and Music, Birmingham City University, Birmingham Music Education Partnership, Bristol Plays Music and the individual schools, the project also aims to improve the quality and frequency of how and when composing is taught in primary schools.
