The Creative Weekends:
These take place at various points in the year and are for a larger group of students (ages 11-18) to work with musicians and composers at the Conservatoire. Unfortunately due to various reasons we can not hold a YCP Weekend this summer but we hope to be back up and running when the new Conservatoire Building is ready in September!
Past Creative Weekends include:
- New Voices – Composing for voice and choir using improvisation
- Composing for media – using Logic Pro
- Composing for ensemble
We have a dedicated team of composers trained to visit schools to deliver composing workshops with a Conservatoire instrumentalist. If you would like us to visit please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form below.
