As a QACI music student Composition Camp is one of the biggest events of the year. Not only is it a time for the whole music cohort across all grades to get to know each other and jam, it’s a time to explore different cultures, styles and the creating processes surrounding the world of music composition. This year we were lucky enough to immerse ourselves in a wide range of different workshops across the 2 days. From Traditional Indian drumming to composition for film and TV, mixed in with an array of performances both traditional in style, and with a fusion of the old and new.

Composition Camp is a time for the music students to further our understanding of general compositional techniques as well as broaden our exploration of world music cultures.  The camp commenced on Friday after school where Year 10 students were introduced to some of the more technical aspects of the music program and introduced to Logic Pro, the software required for the music program at QACI, Year 11 and Year 12 music students commenced their workshops. Friday evening all music students were treated to a performance in the theatre by Music group – Nonsemble.

Music Composition Camp then continued bright and early on Saturday morning, with a full day attending the myriad of workshops of offer.  We, as students are very lucky to have the opportunity to open and explore, even question our understanding of different cultures and their music synergies through the amazing guest performers.

On behalf of the music students at QACI we would like to take the time to share our appreciation and gratitude for the guest performers and lecturers who spent their time helping us to broaden our compositional learning, the way we think about cultural music and deepen our world music understanding; and to the music teachers for the organisation and activities that were made available to us on the day.
