CPD Courses and Events

Listen Imagine Compose is a partnership project bringing together the expertise of researchers, composers, educators and arts organisations. One of its key aims is to share its findings to the wider teaching community and offer CPD opportunities for all those who wish to strengthen their approach to teaching composing.
