Go Compose!

Go Compose!

We love to work with emerging composers at all stages of their creative development, so Go Compose! is right up our street! Initiated and promoted UK-wide by Sound and Music, Go Compose! is delivered in Scotland exclusively by our friends at sound, in collaboration with Red Note.

This three-day composition course is aimed at supporting young composers to create their own original piece of music. Go Compose! is a unique opportunity to work with professional composers and musicians. The young composers are mentored by two inspiring professional composers and three Red Note musicians, developing their skills and creating a new piece of work from scratch. The course culminates in a sharing of their new music during soundfestival in October.

Are you a musician aged 14 – 18 years, interested in stretching your composing skills? We’d love to see you on the next project! Contact participate@sound-scotland.co.uk for more information
