Compose Yourself! is an annual online composition festival open to all young pianists resident in the UK. By providing a focus for students, we aim to encourage young pianists to develop their musicianship, creativity and self-expression.
There are two main categories: competitive and non-competitive, with classes for different age groups. Each entrant will receive an encouraging comment sheet, certificate and a specially composed piece of music at an appropriate level. The event celebrates every entrants' achievement by sharing their compositions via a showcase playlist.
The event is organised by Alison Mathews and Lindsey Berwin, two very experienced teachers and composers. They are passionate about creating an opportunity for all young pianists to compose as part of their learning journey.
