1) Composition Mentorship Program

It is meant to address young or advanced composers who want to work actively on specific scores to enhance their technical skills. In particular, some aspect of the score notation that concern both the performer and conductor’s point of view will be deeply analyzed and discussed in a rather workshop-like way of working.
This is an experience to either prepare or be integrated with your academic studies.
