The Young Composers Project (YCP) is a scheme set up by Birmingham Conservatoire and composers Kirsty Devaney and Joe Cutler, to support young composers in the UK.
They offer a number of free courses and workshops throughout the year where students work closely with Conservatoire student composers and instrumentalists and professional musicians. Once you join YCP you are part of the family so you will receive information about other composing opportunities, have access to reduced ticket prices for concerts at the Conservatoire, and continue having composing support through email. Each year they professionally commission a past YCP member. YCP also visits schools and are planning to create composing resources for schools and teachers.
