Guildhall School launches on-line Young Composers Course

Guildhall School of Music and Drama - Young Composers Course
The Guildhall School of Music and Drama is launching an on-line Young Composers Course aimed at 14 to 18-year-olds. Applications are open, and close on 12 January 2020, and the course starts on 20 January 2020. The course runs for nine weeks and participants receive one-to-one tutoring and hear their own composition performed by staff and students from the Guildhall School, all done via Zoom so that participants can access the institution’s teaching from anywhere in the world.

The course is a development of a pilot scheme which ran during Autumn 2020.  Paul Whitmarsh, Young Composers Course leader commented: 

We have run a pilot Young Composers Course during the Autumn Term, and it has been so pleasing to see how well the course transfers from the physical classroom to on-line. The students exceeded all our expectations with the work that they achieved; it was delightful to see their musical ideas grow during their one-to-one lessons and so exciting to hear their finished pieces played during the on-line workshop and concert at the end of the course. I am thrilled that we are able to fully launch the Young Composers Course in the New Year.
