Have you thought about entering students in Young Composers Day but don’t know where to start? Do you have students who improvise or have lots of musical ideas but need guidance in giving their ideas coherent shape and help with notation? This workshop is for you! Carolyn Halsted will share specific tips and ideas, illustrated by musical examples from the Young Composers Opus books, to help you jump start your students’ creative compositional efforts.
Carolyn has chaired Young Composers Day since 1994 (a quarter century ago) and is herself a composer of numerous piano, vocal, and choral works.
