Composition Blogs

Composition is a key component of any Music programme. At all levels of music making students are required and encouraged to be composers. GCSE Music & A-Level Music will contain compositional elements as well as most Key Stage 3 programmes of study. This page brings together my Composition Blogs so that you can easily find what you need.

This page brings together a range of blogs that focus on Composition. This includes a series which looks at Composing at Home. Please use this page to discover compositional ideas for your students. If you are a student, then use this page to help you compose whether at home or at school.

If you have any topics that you would like me to cover, or any questions, then please get in touch. Encourage your students to compose at home as there are so many ways in which they can do this. The Composing at Home Series is particularly focussed on composing without the need for technology as well as using computer software.

During the Corona Virus lockdown there are a number of ways students can learn & compose whilst at home. Please see my Corona Virus Page for more information.
