Composers' Corner

From how to find inspiration, to writing a great melody, to those crucial finishing touches, each term students compose for an exciting range of projects.

Bringing together students from year groups, Composers’ Corner meets each week on Thursdays after school to explore all aspects musical composition.

In the past few years these have included a Carol Competition, where students hear their new festive works performed by top London chamber choir, The Cantus Ensemble, and a variety of other exciting opportunities such as writing for short films, or collaborating with other departments in the school.  There is also a plentiful supply of biscuits on offer each week which is an added bonus to feed the composers’ imagination!

Other recent highlights include three Composers' Corner students' pieces for film played by contemporary music group ANIMA.

I love Composer's Corner because you get to compose music that is usually performed by amazing groups!
