Acclaimed ensemble Topology, who move effortlessly between pop, jazz, chamber music and progressive rock, will demystify how to create music. By teaching students to listen, generate ideas, and explore the way melodies are “shaped”, Topology will guide students and teachers through the process of composition. Combining the musical ideas of schools across Australia, each performance will be shaped by the students’ unique contribution.
