Young Composers Virtual Summer Course

The Academy welcomes young composers to work remotely with composer Jonathan Nangle as part of the 2022 Summer Programmes


Young composers (and would-be composers) aged 15-18 are invited to spend 2 intensive days working with Composer and RIAM Faculty member Jonathan Nangle, as they explore the vast possibilities of using technology to create their own compositions. Participants will learn more about writing for different instruments and build an excellent foundation to begin a Summer of musical creativity, as they learn to realise their music with the devices, resources, and technology they already have at home.


Jonathan Nangle is a lecturer in Music Technology and Electro-Acoustic Composition at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. As a composer, his work has been commissioned and performed internationally by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Crash Ensemble, Ensemble Scratch the Surface, The Dublin Guitar Quartet, The Chatham Saxophone Quartet, Ergodos Orchestra, New Dublin Voices, Irish Youth Choir, the Spatial Music Collective, violinist Darragh Morgan and pianist Thérèse Fahy, among others. He has represented Ireland twice at the International Rostrum of Composers, and his work has been released by Ergodos, Diatribe, RTÉ Lyric FM, Contemporary Music Centre Ireland and Metier Divine Art Record Labels. His work has also been featured at numerous festivals, been choreographed for film and stage, and broadcast internationally both on radio and television.
