Check this page for class schedule changes, composition resources, and class assignments.
In the Intermediate Young Composers Project, you’ll focus on the fundamentals of composition needed to succeed as a composer, building on the basics of the Introductory level class: melodic construction, development of motives, form and instrumentation. The final project is a wind quintet or brass quintet composition performed by the TSO Ensembles at the Young Composers Festival in May.
