ive expert Key Tutors, a dazzling team of supporting staff, seventy-two enthusiastic young composers, an atmosphere buzzing with excitement, energy and creativity, and a wonderfully spacious venue with state-of-the-art musical facilities! A recipe for success, one might say – indeed, this certainly proved to be the case!

For a second year, Sound and Music (SAM) and The Purcell School have worked hard to refine and further develop their unique, life-changing Summer School for talented young people who enjoy composing.
During the Summer School, 72 young composers enjoyed an exciting, action-packed week of compositional activities and workshops running from dawn to dusk. They were each expected to compose a new piece for a specific ensemble of professional musicians, and by the end of the week to have it completed and recorded. The young people were amazingly industrious and committed, often working through their breaks and lunch hours! The five Key Tutors and supporting staff gave them confidence and helped them to write sensitively and expressively for the instruments/voices in their chosen ensemble.
