ONGOING PROGRAM

6-MONTH ONLINE COMPOSITION PROGRAm for BEGINNER COMPOSERS

(Begins on Wednesday, January 10, 2024)

You are a musician and want to be a composer, but some issues are holding you back. You probably think that...



You did not compose because someone told you or you believe that...

You are not talented enough. Your music theory or technology background needs to be stronger, or you don't feel connected to the musical styles taught at the academic institutions. You want to write in a different style that represents YOU.



Now, you are afraid that...



What if I say: “You Can Do It!”


✔ Anyone can compose. If you can play music and you can tell a story, then you can compose.

✔ It is never too late to start. In fact, the older you get, the more stories you can tell.

✔ You can tell your story and express yourself freely through your music, which does not have to conform to any particular style.

Imagine your musical ideas flowing effortlessly, and you possessing the knowledge and techniques to compose confidently in a variety of styles.


Envision a supportive network of fellow composers, sharing insights and experiences, propelling each other towards greatness. 


This is the world that awaits YOU.
