intensive composition course

A PROGRAM FOCUSED ON DEVELOPING ALL SKILLS RELATED TO MUSIC COMPOSITION IN A HIGH LEVEL

In contrast with the previous course, this intensive course aims to develop the composition skills of the students by teaching all the fields related in detail, with specific lectures and online support apart of the lessons.
The students following this program will receive specific lessons on music theory, basic history of the composition, music production and applied piano playing. All of these plus the practical lessons with musicians once every 4 months make the program even more intense than some conservatory composition programs.
