Original compositions aplenty at February residential

Original compositions aplenty at February residential

Last month we hosted our second residential of the academic year for our Core students. As we all loved it so much last time, we took the students back to Bicton College and yet again enjoyed the beautiful, inspiring surroundings of this rurally situated college.

This residential’s theme was ‘All my own work’. It focused on the students’ own composition work. We encouraged students to submit their own songs and compositions prior to the residential, with the promise that they’d have the opportunity to hear fellow students bring it to life through performance at the residential (much more exciting than only ever hearing it played through Sibelius!).

Once again, our wonderful students showed just how much depth and breadth of creativity and talent they have. A whole range of material was covered at the residential – from pop songs to string quintets to funk rock jams that involved more or less every student on the Core programme!

The whole tutor team agreed that it was a very special residential, with lots of memorable music to savour, and they would love to do it all over again!

A huge well done to all Core students for their tremendous efforts and flexibility during this residential. A big thanks also to the fantastic tutoring team.
