Composition Workshops

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, we are unable to run Composition Workshops.  We hope to resume as soon as the guidelines allow.

Run by composer Richard Leigh and using Sibelius 7, this course is designed to help students develop their compositional skills. All levels are welcome and students can compose in any style of music but the focus of the sessions is on notating the music that you write.
