Composing Workshops for 11 - 14 year olds

29 September - 1 December

BCMG Young Composers is an exciting project for budding composers in School Years 7 - 9 (ages 11* - 14) giving young people the opportunity to compose for BCMG musicians guided by composer Kirsty Devaney. 

Do you play a musical instrument but also have a passion for composing or, would like to try composing for the first time? If yes, this project is for you!

Each term we will recruit a cohort of young people to participate in the series of weekend workshops. In these workshops, you will have the opportunity to compose for BCMG musician(s) and explore a range of composing techniques. The project will culminate in a concert of music which will be filmed and recorded. Experience in reading and writing music notation is helpful but not required.
