New Course in 2015-16

A Musicianship 3 course is being designed for the new academic year. This will be for students who have a solid theoretical background (ABRSM Grade 6+ or equivalent). It will cover devices, techniques and styles in music in a categorical rather than chronological way, for those wishing to equip themselves to travel into composition, arranging and songwriting; or to gain greater insight and analytical tools to understand how music works. 

Links to the Morley webpage will posted as they become available.
