- Meetings are once a month on a Sunday (October-March) 10am-4pm, at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham City University, 200 Jennens Rd, Birmingham B4 7XR
- During the year you will have access to:
- One to one composing mentoring by Conservatoire composers
- Visiting guest professional composers and songwriters
- Your music and ideas performed live with instant feedback
- Some past experience of creating your own music is recommended but this can be through improvisation, songwriting, and sequencing software programmes such as logic, or Western classical notation.
- This year YCP will include non-western instruments into the ensemble. Learn more about a range of instruments from across the world, how they are played, how to compose for them, and how you can include them in your music to explore new possibilities and sounds. We may also run a conducting branch so please let us know if you are interested in this.
