Intro YCP

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

In the Introductory Young Composers Project, you’ll learn the fundamentals of music theory and composition needed to succeed as a composer: melodic construction, development of motives, form and introductory instrumentation. The final project is a string quintet composition performed by the TSO String Quintet at the Young Composers Reading Sessions in May.
