Working with children and young people is central to Lynne Plowman's work as a composer. Much of her music has been composed for young audiences.
Lynne has worked in collaboration with writers, singers and theatre practitioners internationally, leading creative music projects in schools for companies including Opera North, Welsh National Opera, California State University and the Vadstena Academy in Sweden.
In Wales, Lynne is a composition tutor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where she teaches undergraduate and post-graduate composers on a one-to-one basis. She also teaches composition classes to 10 to 18 year olds in the RWCMD Junior Conservatoire.
Lynne is the resident composer for Dyfed Young Composers, a scheme which takes composition workshops into secondary schools across West Wales, and her flute and piano piece, ‘Night Dances’ is a set work for the WJEC music ‘A’ level syllabus. Lynne has teamed up with composer, Andrew Wilson-Dickson, to offer a workshop which supports this new strand of the syllabus. This includes a live performance of the three ‘Chamber Music in Wales’ pieces (Night Dances, Ariel and Tango Passacaglia), a discussion of the compositions with the pupils, and some related composition work.
