What is YCP?

The Young Composers Project (YCP) is a community of young creative music-makers in the West-Midlands UK.

Based at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, composers Kirsty Devaney and Joe Cutler set up YCP to provide a supportive network where young people can meet and work closely with musicians and composers to have their music performed live!

Who is YCP for?

YCP is for anyone aged 14-19 who loves making their own music.
Whether you create songs, write instrumental music, improvise, or use technology we want to hear from you!

What music can I create at YCP?

We want you to find your own musical voice by giving you freedom to be creative whilst offering support and advice along the way. We encourage you to push musical boundaries and try new things!

When/where are the workshops?

YCP normally takes place once a month on a Sunday. Sessions are usually held at the Birmingham Conservatoire. However YCP will be delivered virtually in 2021 due to Covid-19.

How much does it cost?

YCP remains, and always has been FREE!
