Express yourself through multiple musical genres

Now, more than at any other time in history, composers can express themselves in any number of musical and artistic genres.

In contrast to most other composition courses at this level we at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire celebrate this diversity and make it our mission to foster artists who challenge, innovate and transform notions of artistic practice today.

Individual tuition

Through individual tuition and small classes you will develop an understanding of differing compositional styles, particularly contemporary art music, pop, jazz and fusion, experimental and conceptual music, film and theatre music, electroacoustic and studio-based composition.

From the outset, you will be encouraged to explore your own ideas both within the context of a specific genre and using genre as a jumping-off point for the creation of new artistic concepts.
