Sound and Music opens Summer School applications4:35, 12th January 2017
Sound and Music is now inviting applications for its Summer School, which will take place 30 July – 5 August 2017.
Now in its ninth year, the Summer School is a residential course for 75 young creators and composers aged 14-18, devised by Sound and Music in partnership with the Purcell School of Music.
Students can explore and develop their musical ideas, be inspired by peers and professional musicians, and try new areas of musical creation, from composing for film to writing for voices.
Composers will receive guidance and advice from experienced tutors and leading professional musicians. Each young person will receive over 60 hours of tutoring, with one tutor to every three pupils.
The £450 fee includes all tutoring, accommodation, food and activities throughout the week. Bursaries and scholarships are available, regardless of whether students are from a low or higher income background.
Applications should be submitted by noon on 30 March.
