Michael Edwards - Teaching Archive

These pages provide notes, handouts, and documentation to various classes I taught in the past. I won't be updating this or the linked pages so links will no doubt break over time.

I now teach at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany.

University of Edinburgh

I was Programme Director for the MSc in Digital Composition and Performance and PhD in Creative Music Practice.
