Music students at The Sixth Form College, Solihull took part in practical workshops with students from the Birmingham Conservatoire last week.
Students on the A level Music and Music Technology courses took part in the workshops with undergraduate and Masters students from the Birmingham Conservatoire who are currently studying both Music Technology and Composing degrees. The practical sessions centred around composing, with Conservatoire students offering feedback on our students work, as well as suggestions for improving their work.
Music Teacher Chris Phelps commented, “I’m grateful to all the Conservatoire students for giving up their time to help our students. Most of them have been where our students are now and it’s useful for our students to see where their work can take them in the future. Our students found the feedback invaluable and the Conservatoire students were genuinely impressed with the quality and originality of their ideas.”
Composing forms 30% of the A level Music course and more than half of the A level Music Technology course.
Music students will be performing at a Christmas Concert next month. Taking place on Wednesday 14 December at 7.00pm, this concert is free of charge and tickets are available by telephoning 0121 704 2581 or emailing Marketing at the College.
