GCSE Music Composition Workshop

  • CalendarAvailable on request
  • Clock outline2-4 hours

Students participate in a range of workshop activities that are designed to inspire their GCSE composition projects.

The workshop activities that we offer include:

  • writing music for film
  • composing using music technology
  • writing programmatic music (storytelling) using extended techniques.

An event would normally last between two to three hours, but we are able to be flexible. We are happy to work with you to tailor an event to your needs.
