Held in Sydney from 10-14 December 2018, this will be a five-day intensive program presented by Ensemble Offspring. Activities include:

- instrumental workshops
- one-on-one mentoring and peer sessions
- group improvisations

The Hatched Academy Composer Summer School will be open to six successful compositional applicants from around Australia, and will be led by Artistic Director, Claire Edwardes and London based guest mentor and co-founder of Ensemble Offspring, Matthew Shlomowitz. Also on faculty are two high-profile Australian composers - Amanda Cole (Sydney) and Cathy Milliken (Berlin). Five core members of Ensemble Offspring will be in residence at this week-long intensive -  Zubin Kanga (piano), Lamorna Nightingale (flute), Jason Noble (clarinet), Claire Edwardes (percussion) and Veronique Serret (violin).

Successful applicants will be required to submit a draft composition, for the combination of violin, flute, clarinet, piano, percussion (or a subset thereof) to Ensemble Offspring, Artistic Director, Claire Edwardes by October 31 in preparation for their attendance at the Composer Summer School. This can be an existing or a newly composed work and will be workshopped at the event and professionally recorded for portfolio use.
