Music Composition

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

The aim of the Music Composition course is to provide participants with the basic knowledge and compositional techniques required to work in the style that they wish to explore. Participants will work on their own tailored composing task created in consultation with the tutor and reviewed and developed each week.

Each week different topics will be discussed including:

  • how to get and develop inspiration
  • different approaches to harmony
  • drafting strategies
  • using different software packages as tools
  • how to write for different instruments

The class will explore various works by other composers and take part in a composition masterclass, featuring a guest performer.


Tristan was brilliant in the way he took in everybody’s background – very encouraging to all.
This course exceeded my expectations.
Tristan gave an excellent broad overview of composition, but also gave really vital and in depth personal feedback and guidance. I loved this course!
