Composition Workshop for Highschool Students (Years 9-12)

10 July 2018 @ 8:30 am - 13 July 2018 @ 2:30 pm


Aspiring composers in Years 9  – 12 are invited to participate in a composition workshop with Dr David Banney. This is an opportunity for Senior students to develop their HSC/IB compositions. Younger students with an interest in developing their compositional skills are also encouraged to apply. Places are limited to maximise individual tuition.

Dr David Banney is a composer, conductor and viola player, whose works include instrumental, choral and chamber music.  His music has been performed by orchestras including the Queensland and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras, and recordings of his works have been broadcast on ABC Classic FM and Sydney’s 2MBS Fine Music.
