Composers Hub II
"We all know that music can be used as a tool to bring people together. Whether that’s in the form of a concert, club night, music forum or even in a record store, these are all places where like minded individuals congregate to share a similar experience. My aspiration for the composer’s hub project is to offer exposure to people from different backgrounds, to the world of composition, using digital technology. The idea of a composer’s hub is to help introduce, or further the skills of creative thinkers who are interested in music. The project would encourage participants to generate musical ideas, and learn how to develop these in to completed compositions.". James Phelan
Sessions will be delivered in English.
Participants may just be curious with how the composing process works, others may already feel they have the immediate skills to make an impact within the music world, but require additional support or guidance to help them achieve their goals.
