The young women composers camp aims to amplify the voices of young women, to allow them access to a high level of musical training and to close the gender gap in the music composition field and create a more equitable music sector. We strive to be accessible and inclusive to anyone who identifies as female or non-binary.
Students will start each day with Composition Seminar, which will be led by one of our primary composition faculty members. Students will learn traditional (and non-traditional) methods of composition, write counterpoint exercises, participate in group compositions and improvisations, etc. Students will also have Theory, Choir and individual composition time daily, in addition to one private composition lesson each week.
