Passionate about Music and Performance? Send us your composition and you could win £250!

The importance of Music and its impact on wellbeing has been well documented in recent months, particularly through lockdowns. In recordings during this time we have seen that Music has the power to cheer (like Matt Lucas’ ‘Baked Potato Song') and sooth (as heard in Paul Harvey’s ‘Four Notes’ piece) and its effect is different to every individual. We're asking people to submit a creative composition (PDF score or performed video) of no longer than 2 minutes to show how music has helped them during lockdown.

The composer of the winning composition will receive a £250 cash prize and our expert Music course team will provide guidance and feedback to help them improve their musical skills.

Simply fill out the form on this page and we will be in touch with guidance on how to submit your performance for a chance to win!

Be quick, closing date is 7 March 2021!
