About Very Young Composers

The Very Young Composers of Vail allows students of all backgrounds to create their own musical piece from start to finish, during a week-long workshop. With the help of teaching artists students learn to compose for different instruments, write a short story, and set the story to music in a step-by-step process. The program will culminate in a public performance by professional musicians of all the student compositions. The Very Young Composers program was brought to Vail in 2006 by its creator, Jon Deak of the New York Philharmonic. No previous music experience is necessary, the only requirement for entrance is a love of music and a willingness to engage in it.

There are no Very Young Composers courses available for registration.
