WEEK ONE 29 July to 5 August
WEEK TWO 5 to 12 August
The Composers' Workshop is intended for composers of all ages and standards, including student composers from the music colleges and universities, as well as keen amateurs.
Applicants should send an example of their own work with their application form. Once accepted for the course, students will be asked to complete a short composition project before arriving at the school. On the course itself, it is hoped that participants will have the opportunity to hear their music played in workshops.
Time will also be devoted to the study of new music by leading composers and to the examination of many aesthetic aspects of the music of today. The course may also embrace some points of improvisation and thus proficiency on an instrument is desirable though not essential.
