How to write a composition brief

About this course

Whether you are a GCSE or A level musician, you will probably need to write your own composition brief as part of the course.  This is just a couple of sentences that outlines what you are setting out to do in your piece.  It sounds fairly simple, yet it’s important that you write a brief that is not so detailed that you’re restricting yourself, but not so vague that you lack a sense of purpose when you begin composing.  Want to know how to do this?  Then this course is for you!
