Schedule

We start by having breakfast together with everybody in the morning. Then, we break the students up into four different groups. Throughout the course of the four days, the groups rotate through the teachers. Each respective class is an in-depth study of that particular teacher’s style and approach to composition. It may even focus in on one or two compositions, some of the techniques involved, and how a tune came to be. After that, we all have lunch. Another two-hour class follows in the evening before dinner. At night, private lessons are offered as well as the opportunity to hit the stage!
