SOUND AND MUSIC SUMMER SCHOOL: A unique opportunity for young composers and creative musicians

Purcell School of Music, Hertfordshire, 31 July - 6 August 2011

Application deadline: Friday 29 April

“This course has changed my life! It’s opened me up to so many new things.”

“The summer school has shaped me as a composer.”

2010 participants

If you are aged between 14 and 18 and are into creating music, the Sound and Music Summer School could be the opportunity of a lifetime. It’s the only UK residential course of its kind for young composers and an inspiring week full of collaboration, fun, learning and creativity.

After the huge success of last year’s highly-oversubscribed course, we’re back to offer you the chance to put yourself forward for the Sound and Music Summer School 2011. It’ll give you the opportunity to work with composers and musicians from a wide variety of musical traditions, from classical and jazz to world and new media. From life-changing musical experiences to life-long friendships, there’s so much you can get out of the course.

We are looking for young composers* with talent, a commitment to creating your own music and a desire to learn more. If you think you fit the bill, go ahead and apply!

*By composer we mean anyone who creates their own original pieces of music. During the Summer School, participants need to be able to notate their pieces so that performers can play them, but notation can range from traditional western classical to chord charts and from graphic scores to text instructions.
