Composers in Residence 2019

In 2019 we continue to feature a composer in residence on each part of the course. We welcome ADAM GORB  on part one and Alexander Rosenblatt on part two.        

 Alongside individual teaching, they will each give a lecture and have 2 concerts on each week in the Stoller Hall. Alongside works for piano there will be works for string quartet and ensembles. Not to be missed.

Composition Course

I wanted to thank you very much for the astounding Chetham's summer course! These amazing two weeks have given me the opportunity of meeting brilliant piano teachers who made me technically progress but also understand new ways of analysis and listening!  Augustin, 15

The composition course has always proved very popular and this year we welcome some very distinguished composers to the faculty. Participants who wish to study composition will have workshops,individual coaching and opportunities for performance.


If you have written any compositions please bring them along together with any recordings you may have. It would be helpful if you could bring manuscript paper, pencils, rubbers etc to the lessons.


In previous years some of the students on the course have had their works performed during the week, making their 'World premiere' very memorable for everyone.

Composition Course for Beginners

The composition course has proved so popular in recent years that extra faculty have always been needed. This year it is possible to take part on the composition course even if you have never tried writing anything! If you have always wanted to try to compose, but didnít know where to start, then tick the beginners course for composition on the entry form.

Book early to ensure a place.
