Summer Composition Intensive | Webster University

Summer Composition Intensive


Summer Composition Intensive Student at Work!Is music swirling inside your head? The Summer Composition Intensive is just for you! By the end of two weeks, you will have written an original composition for a specified instrumental trio with an arsenal of new skills and resources, a recorded performance of your original composition, and new friends!

Unique features of the CMS Intensive include meeting and working with St. Louis area composers and musicians. Students will utilize the Webster University Department of Music’s computer lab. Students will work in groups according to experience level (from those needing the basics of notation, transposition, and scoring, to students with prior composing experience). All participants must be able to read music and play an instrument or sing. A pre-camp questionnaire indicating experience is mailed the week of June 15th.

Students must attend the full length of the Intensive for their works to be performed and recorded.
