Ear Opener

Ear Opener is a series of video masterclasses that demystify the process of writing music, aimed at young people aged 14-20.

Ear Opener is accessible to anyone who wants to write music, with content freely available to watch on YouTube. Created by our Artistic Director and renowned composer Paul Clark, featuring candid interviews from celebrated musicians and composers from across the genre spectrum, including legendary producer Brian Eno, jazz composer and saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi, Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien, film and TV composer Isobel Waller-Bridge and many more.

Ear Opener draws on over 15 years’ experience of working in secondary schools and has been created in consultation with music teachers and students. It also builds upon our Living Room Music project, currently running at three London state schools.
