Limited to 4 Composers Per Master Class. Hands-On Individualized Constructive Critique Of Your Compositions.

  • Participating composers will watch the instructor screen, following the scores, and hear the playback.

  • The instructor will discuss each score with each composer, make suggestions, edit the scores for illustration purposes, and provide constructive direction for improvements, revisions, and further submissions for review.

  • At the end of the session, participants will have access to the recording under their continuing subscriptions and the instructor will save any revisions and score comments and send back to the composer
