RIAM Young Composer's Virtual Summer Project
Young composers (and would-be composers) age 13-18 are invited to spend a week working with Composer and RIAM Faculty member Jonathan Nangle, as they explore the vast possibilities of using technology to create their own compositions. Participants will work remotely with RIAM musicians to learn more about writing for different instruments, and build an excellent foundation to begin a Summer of musical creativity, as they learn to realise their music with the devices, resources, and technology they already have at home.
Note: Webinar sessions will be delivered via Zoom, and participants will need access to a computer or laptop in order to use some of the programmes covered in the course.
