Each participant will have an opportunity to write a piece and have it be performed and recorded by TURNmusic, Vermont's contemporary music ensemble.

Music-COMP's week-long summer institute gives teachers a chance to explore the creative side of their musicianship. Over the course of the week, participants will compose an original work which will then be rehearsed and performed by TURNmusic, Vermonts own contemporary music ensemble. Participants will be guided through the entire composition process with daily feedback and support as they compose. The morning sessions will be devoted to group activities and seminars where teachers will learn how to integrate composition into their curriculum, explore music technology programs that can be used to help facilitate the composition process, learn how to develop composition lesson plans and practice giving meaningful feedback to student composers. During the afternoons there will be structured time to work on individual compositions as well as feedback sessions with peers and institute faculty.

Topics Covered Include:

The benefits of composition to a music program
The Creative Process and where to begin
Curriculum Integration
Lesson plans and strategies for all grade levels
Arranging for your ensemble
Assessing composition or other creative work
Noteflight and other notation programs
Garageband/Soundation and other electronic music programs
