I highly recommend ALL young composers enter the BBC Inspire and you will all have a good quality recording to send from the concert (yey)! You get a free workshop in London and free tickets to a concert just for entering! I did it every year when I was younger and the workshops were a lot of fun!
There are also composing workshops in Birmingham on Sunday 11 May Inspire Lab – Birmingham
“A fun and practical workshop for budding young composers aged 12-18, led by composers and members of the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.”
