Face the Music Composition

Join Face the Music
Individual Lessons Program: Any teen musician who has auditioned for Face the Music may be eligible to sign up for lessons in Composition, Songwriting, Electronic Music, Improvisation, or Conducting.

Composition Lessons PROGRAM

All Face the Music students are encouraged to expand their perspective beyond performance and explore creative music making in other areas such as composition. The Composition Program at Face the Music welcomes composers at all levels and with varying stylistic interests. Instrumentalists who have never composed before but are curious to try should sign up as an opportunity to craft their first piece of music. In lessons, students will work weekly with a dedicated coach one-on-one to develop their creative practice, explore musical possibilities, and discover their own unique compositional voice through this hands-on learning process. Student-composers who have gained experience and are dedicated to their growth may be invited to write a piece for a Face the Music ensemble, which is an incredible opportunity to develop a piece in a laboratory environment.
