Check this page for class schedule changes, composition resources, and class assignments.

The Advanced Young Composers Project covers the principals of harmony, voice leading, form, score reading and ear training. You’ll compose short works for each class which are played by visiting TSO ensembles. The final project is an orchestral work performed by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra at the Young Composers Reading Sessions in May. Many graduates from this program have continued to pursue composition at the undergraduate and graduate level at universities and conservatories across the United States.
