St Hilda’s College and Jacqueline du Pre Music centre, Oxford

Treat yourself to a gigantic creative boost with this intensive five-day course with a track record for taking composers onto an entirely new level, giving them the technical capacity and confidence to realise more ambitious musical ideas and projects. Composer Alasdair Nicolson offers a friendly and supportive approach that nevertheless is challenging and deeply instructive. With a focus on string writing, composers are required to write for amateur strings as well as a professional string trio comprising Max Baillie, Ruth Gibson and Robin Michael. One session each day is dedicated to writing as a composers’ ensemble. There are a range of accommodation options and bursaries for full-time students.
