Situation

Music composition is the Cinderella of the curriculum. The Young Composer of Dyfed programme aims to redress this imbalance.

Solution

There are two elements to our programme, • educational, running between September and January; and • competitive, entered in October, with entries received in February and those chosen, by a professional composer engaged as adjudicator, invited in April to a day of masterclasses, a public concert of their music by a professional ensemble.
