Develop your individual style and musical personality with a rich schedule of project-based work
Our collaborative degree courses offer opportunities for performance and recording in a wide range of contexts.
Our undergraduate course is shaped to give you a strong foundation in compositional technique, whether your interests lie in writing for concert, media and film, staged productions or electronic music.
At postgraduate level, our demanding courses comprise a full schedule of project work, including workshops, performances and recordings of student compositions. Over the past year, the Composition Department has staged at least 20 concerts of new works, both inside and outside the Academy.
Courses are taught by dedicated teachers and active composers who are engaged in a broad range of compositional activities.
