The BBC Proms Inspire scheme is for budding composers aged 12 to 18 who want to write their own music. The scheme provides you with a friendly environment to share ideas, participate in workshops, meet other young composers and develop your musical creativity. Best of all, it's free! 

Join composer Judith Weir and a team of professional musicians in this practical workshop in which you’ll explore methods of writing new music for solo instruments. With support and inspiration from Judith, each young composer will be given the opportunity to work in small groups with a musician and write a piece for them to perform at the end of the workshop.

Please note the workshop will be repeated at 2.30pm-5.30pm.
