Date Posted: 31 May 2017
Details: During the course students will work with resident ensemble, Musiclab allowing composers to rehearse and hear their work in live performance as well as have work recorded.

Students will benefit from individual composition tuition from a respected and creative team of Royal Conservatoire’s experts and professionally-active composition Lecturers. Our renowned guest artist will be composer Judith Weir.

In order to fully optimise tutorial, rehearsal and recording opportunities, places on this course are limited to eight students per group.

Course outline
This intensive and demanding course will give you an opportunity to develop your individual compositional technique and voice in a questioning and supportive way.

Each day will consist of a mixture of group discussions, group rehearsals, composer talks and seminars, individual lessons and writing (and re-writing!) time.

Daily rehearsals and workshops will allow you to gradually change your work during the course leading to an informal concert that will be professionally recorded and made available to you.

Entry requirements
Applicants should have a relatively advanced understanding of notational skills and preferably access to music composition software such as Sibelius or Finale in order to fully benefit from this summer school.

Students will be required to submit scores and recordings (electronically if possible) for consideration by the Course Leader in advance of being accepted to the summer school.

Younger students may be accepted to the summer school at the discretion of the course leader.

Recordings can be uploaded to your online application form ideally as a Sibelius or Finale file however a private YouTube link or mp3 is also acceptable.
