Faculty of Music


John Woolrich

Wide-ranging and always thought-provoking, Woolrich is a much commissioned and frequently performed composer, a highly creative teacher and an original programmer. A number of preoccupations thread through his varied output, including the art of creative transcription and a fascination with machinery and mechanical processes (heard in many pieces including The Ghost in the Machine and The Barber’s Timepiece).


The Faculty’s series of Composers’ Workshops is open to students in all years of the undergraduate music course, as well as masters and doctoral students, indeed anyone with an interest in the creation of new music. Because space is limited, please email Richard Causton ( if you are not a Faculty member and wish to attend.
