Composing in the Classroom: a Music Excellence London webinar delivered by the ISM Trust

Tuesday 20 September 2016


Music Excellence London (MEL) is a dynamic network of classroom music teachers, music education hubs, cultural organisations, and the wider music education community which supports excellent musical teaching and learning at Key Stage 3 in London schools. Along with a programme of TeachMeets and Inspire Events (one-off full-day conferences), MEL will deliver a series of webinars in partnership with the ISM Trust.

The first webinar of the series will be brought to you by Philip Cashian, Head of Composition at the Royal Academy of Music, and Steven Berryman, MEL Teacher Advocate and Director of Music at the City of London School for Girls. This free webinar will explore how to cultivate authentic composing in the classroom working backwards from what composers do professionally through A-level, GCSE then KS3. The work of living composers will be discussed as a stimulus for creative work.
