There is currently little contemporary music for young performers; as a result students wishing to explore the repertoire  have few options and are often left discouraged by harder pieces. 

To address this, BCMG invites selected commissioned composers to create short pieces for beginner to intermediate players. These pieces are then made available on our Learning Resources website, for music teachers and students around the world to access and play.

The ability to learn and play new music helps to expand the breadth of skill and the creativity of young players in Birmingham and beyond.
