Dr Jonathan Savage was delighted to be invited to contribute to the most recent Listen, Imagine, Compose online CPD event yesterday. Focusing on what music technology can offer young composers beyond the classroom, both now and in the future, Jonathan gave a short presentation focusing on three C’s: choice, curation and celebration.

UCan Play have been involved in the Listen, Imagine, Compose project run by the Birmingham Contemporary New Music Group since its inception in 2010. It is now a partnership between BCNWG, Sound & Music and Birmingham City University. It was great to see some old friends and also meet new ones too via the Zoom meeting.

If you have not had a look at the resources offered by Listen, Imagine, Compose and the associated Master’s level programme, do check out their website. It is a fantastic set of ideas about musical composition and how it can be taught effectively.
