Sound Imaginations is BCMG’s main programme of composing workshops in secondary schools. BCMG has been delivering composing projects in secondary schools for over 20 years and we are committed to ensuring that composing with young people is creative and musical whether this is through open composing briefs or within particular styles or genres.

BCMG are offering whole day composing workshops in school and can either focus on the curriculum or be enrichment activities. Most activity happens with Years 9, 10 and 11.

Our current offer includes:

  • Creative Ensemble workshops
  • Developing a musical idea
  • Composing from a tone/note row stimulus
  • Song writing

Composers working on this project include Ben Markland, David Horne, Kirsty Devaney and Michael Betteridge
