    Default Classical music course

    Hello, this is my first post so be kind!

    Is anyone able to recommend me a good course on classical music theory and composition? I am a complete beginner when it comes to classical music. Although I've been playing guitar for 10 years and just started on piano.

    I know a fair amount of music theory already from college, but that was a contemporary music course.

    Oh, I'm in the UK btw.

    Thanx again!

    Hi there, G-natural. I'm afraid I don't know any, and our diverse members are not likely to be clued up on UK courses tailored to your needs, but I'm pretty sure my good friend Google might.

    Check Ucas?

    Most universities don't have strict entrance grades for Music.

    Or, if you are graded on performance (guitar) then you can tr Cucas - the British Conservatory Application website. I think all undergraduate courses require a grade 8 level of performance along with other qualifications.

    Also, check you local conservatory - they usually offer summer courses or day courses for specific subjects to try engage the public.
