Meet the Composer: June Armstrong

We profile some of the composers who have been accepted for CMC representation over the last year.

June Armstrong began composing piano music for her piano students in 2009, specialising in educational music. Her compositions range from complete beginner standard to diploma level. She studied music at Queen’s University Belfast.

Her work Castle Ward – Temple Dancer in Blue (2009) has recently been added to the Royal Irish Academy of Music 2015-18 syllabus at Grade VII.

An excerpt of this work can be heard on the composer’s website.
