The Composition Intensive at New England Music Camp

Jessica Meyer working with High school musicians on scripting outreach concerts for Notes with a Purpose

The Composers Intensive invites composers ages 14-18 for a Festival experience where they develop their creative practice while also building their portfolio under the guidance of two very active composers in the field.  Participants will learn specifically about idiomatic writing while  building relationships with the musicians on-site for the Chamber Music Intensive.  Composers will receive a recording of at least one of their pieces, and benefit from activating the real-world skills they will need to share and grow their music in the future.
