The Junior Composers program seeks to increase students' musical understanding, encourage students' musical growth, and strengthen students' abilities to creatively collaborate with each other.
Each student participates in daily theory classes, and has exposure to renown performing artists and guest ensembles. Each student receives 3-8 one-on-one private composition lessons from members of the JC faculty, composes a new piece for chamber ensemble, and facilitates rehearsals of that piece, which is premiered on the last day of camp. In addition to composing, rehearsing, and performing one's own work, each student assists other students in the rehearsal and performance of their respective pieces.
