Summer Composition Intensive


Summer Composition Intensive Student at Work!Got music in your head but don't know how to get it on paper? Do you want to hear how your Finale score sounds when performed by live musicians? The Summer Composition Intensive is just for you! By the end of two weeks, you will have an arsenal of new skills and resources, a performance of what you've written by professional musicians, and new friends! 

Unique features of the CMS Intensive include opportunities to meet and work with St. Louis area composers and musicians. Advanced 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.
