Sherborne Summer School of Music 2020
Extra Curricular Activities
Weeks 1 & 2
After three decades of composition courses at Sherborne (formally Canford), our international reputation for developing and nurturing composers has never been higher.
We are privileged that our course is directed by the distinguished, inspirational composer Malcolm Singer. His ability to build and develop creative and technical skills on an individual basis, in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, has been a blue-print which has frequently been copied but never surpassed.
The course warmly welcomes composers of all ages and standards who wish to hone their craft through practical experience and performance.
Applicants should send an example of their own work with their application form. Once accepted, participants will be asked to complete a short composition project before arriving at the school. They will also be expected to complete a further project on the course itself. It is intended that students will have an opportunity to hear some of their music played in workshops and in the course’s public concert at the end of the week.
Time will also be devoted to the study of new music by leading composers and to the examination of many aesthetic aspects of the music of today. Proficiency on an instrument is desirable though not essential.
