Young Composers 2020

It's that time again! We are unveiling our Young Composers Project for 2020. This project is highly anticipated by both teacher & students each year because we get to enjoy a change of pace for the summertime, and turn our attention towards writing original music. Engaging in writing music has several great benefits. It enhances our understanding of music theory, note reading and music fluency, while exercising some creativity. 

How Young Composers works: 
Each year in the summertime, all of our piano students explore creativity through writing music. The ways we approach this are adapted to all levels, from preschool up through advanced students. AND continuing students who have a working knowledge of note reading, as well as at least 6 months of playing experience, also have the opportunity to notate their original music using Noteflight notation software, and to record a track of their composition during our recording week in the studio. For online students who are unable to come into the studio or have access to recording equipment at home, we simply export the midi file from the notation software for their audio track. The sheet music is collected into a book, and the audio is assembled into an album, and that is what we're publishing here today!

Without any further ado, I am proud to present the Young Composers 2020 project!
