FREE web resources to teach composition

Listen, Imagine, Compose

A brand new website to support the teaching of composing in schools has been launched by Sound and Music, the national charity for new music, with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and Birmingham City University.

Listen, Imagine, Compose offers free schemes of work and lesson plans, all created by composers working with a teacher and a class of pupils, with ideas for composing at KS3 and KS4. The site also provides information about the partnership’s Continuing Professional Development course for KS3, GCSE and A level music teachers, which aims to inspire and nurture creative approaches to composition.
