Young Songwriters – open to 14 – 18 year old
The Young Songwriters is a programme that will get your melodies and lyrics out of the bedroom and in front of professional musicians who will help you craft and shape your work by exploring new sounds, instruments, genres and approaches to writing music. We’d love to work with you whatever you put together, be it Grime, EDM, Jazz, Folk, Classical or something completely different.

Barbican Box Music – secondary school music teachers
The Barbican Box is a portable box filled with the ingredients for making and creating original theatre, visual art or music inspired by our world class arts programme. Curated and designed by composer and musician Max Richter, this year’s Barbican Box Music will contain an array of inspiration for teachers to create new music with their secondary school students. Teachers will benefit from world class training days exploring new ways of composing in the class room. All participants will get to perform at the Barbican with Max and will receive free tickets to a Barbican Contemporary Music Concert.
