Sound and Music Summer School 2015 - applications now open

Applications now open to 14-18 year old composers to attend Sound and Music's Summer School.

This unique residential course, from 2-8 August 2015, helps students advance their composition skills through an inspiring and intensive week using the specialist facilities of the Purcell School of Music.

Full of collaboration, fun, learning and creativity, 75 young composers aged 14 – 18 will have the opportunity to work with professional composers and musicians from a wide variety of musical traditions, from classical and jazz to world and new media.

During the week, students will:
• Explore different styles and methods of composing and music-making
• Meet and work with leading composers and musicians
• Create their own piece of music
• Have their music performed and recorded
• Meet lots of other young composers

We are looking for students who can demonstrate their talent for composition, who are enthusiastic about creating their own original music and who are keen to learn more.

A means-tested grant scheme means that everyone offered a place will be able to attend, regardless of family circumstances.

Applications are now open
Deadline for applications: 12 noon Thursday 2nd April 2015

Contact for more information or to receive application forms in hard copy.
