Treat yourself this New Year to a vibrant creative boost with CoMA’s intensive mid-winter five-day composition course, in partnership with Allcomers Music. This course has an impressive track record in taking early-stage composers onto an entirely new level, providing the technical capacity and confidence to realise more ambitious musical projects.
Well-known Scottish composer Alasdair Nicolson will be in residence throughout, structuring the course, offering friendly and supportive advice to composers at all stages of their development, whilst challenging them to push their skills and knowledge. With a focus on string writing, composers will be required to write for amateur strings as well as for a professional string trio. In addition there is the option for participants to create and perform works together as a composers’ ensemble.
