Following our recent online sessions showcasing examples of composers working in community settings, sound and Red Note are now launching The Engaged Composer Professional Development Opportunity for early career composers to devise, develop and deliver inspiring projects with community groups in a fully supported environment. We are looking for composers who are passionate about making and creating music with people and developing skills to facilitate, collaborate and work in different settings.
This six-month programme will consist of online sessions covering practical and administrative related topics, a practical weekend retreat, shadowing opportunities, delivery of your own project, mentoring and a reflective evaluation process. The sessions will be led by composers Brian Irvine, Pippa Murphy and Gareth Williams with members of the sound and Red Note management teams.
This opportunity is suitable for early career composers, or those in the latter stages of higher education specifically seeking to develop practical skills and experience in community settings. Participants must be able to commit to all the sessions up front and be in a position to devise and deliver a project of personal choice in their local community.
Please note that sound and Red Note are committed to work with and support composers from under-represented groups and encourage applications from composers from a wide range of backgrounds.
