Due to Covid-19 YCP are currently assessing how we can continue to run next academic year ensuring the safety of all staff and students. We have some possible exciting new ways to deliver composing support starting in October 2020 but more information will be available later in the summer.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to join our mailing list to keep up to date: birminghamyoungcomposers@gmail.com

The usual YCP workshops take place as follows:

  • For ages 14-18 (we accept some composers aged 19 who are taking re-sits or a gap year)
  • 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 current Royal Birmingham Conservatoire composers
    • Visiting guest professional composers/songwriters/producers
    • Your music and ideas performed live with instant feedback
