Composition

Composition PROGRAM

All Face the Music students are encouraged to be improvisers and composers in addition to playing and performing in ensembles. Composition students receive 40-minute private composition lessons on Sundays at Face the Music. Students may sign up for the year or for an eight-week cycle in the fall, winter or spring. The Composition Program welcomes composers at all levels and with varying stylistic interests. Instrumentalists who have never composed before but have always wanted to can use this as an opportunity to compose their first piece of music! Student-composers who have experience and are working on larger-scale works may be invited to write a piece for a Face the Music ensemble and have the opportunity to develop that piece in a laboratory environment.

Individual Lessons are offered in eight-week Cycles: Fall, Winter, and Spring. In each Cycle students receive eight, 40-minute private lessons on Sundays. Additionally, each Cycle includes an opening group class for Composers and Songwriters as well as a concluding Composers and Songwriters Showcase event.
