We run the following sessions for Music students:

Performance: Outstanding performers drawn from our academic and instrumental staff are able to lead masterclasses. These offer an invaluable insights into musicianship and technical approaches to Performance. Participants and listeners report finding the experience inspirational and stimulating, both musically and intellectually.

Composition: Our award winning composition staff (e.g. two winners at the 2017 British Composers Awards) cover an extremely broad range of compositional styles and approaches. We can offer workshops for composers wishing to explore instrumental and vocal music, studio composition, and music and the moving image. Or we can cut across these areas to deliver workshops that help students and teachers identify new strategies for developing compositional ideas and materials.

Film Music: Our staff have considerable experience of film music both practically and theoretically. In this fun and interactive workshop we explore some of the functions of narrative film music through a variety of historical and contemporary examples. How does music work with or against the film's narrative? What does the music communicate to its audience?

Music Technology: We have a longstanding research interests in the connection between music and technology and can provide lecture-demonstrations exploring some of the creative techniques composers use to develop distinctive aural materials that explore the boundaries between sound-design and music. We can introduce a range of open-source DSP (Digital Signal Processing) tools and innovative sound manipulation techniques for enhancing students' sound palettes.

Improvisation and Experimental Music: Building on our very successful Experimental Ensemble, we are able to provide workshops for groups of students that focus on new ways of listening, performing, and interacting. We explore basic improvisation warm-up techniques and then develop methods to interpret graphic and animated scores. This is open to all students regardless of performing experience. Along with the workshop leader this enjoyable activity is also often facilitated by some current student members of our Experimental Ensemble.

This is a free service and most sessions last approximately one hour, although it is possible to alter the sessions depending upon the needs of the school/college.
