Our composition program allows interested campers to further their skills in musical composition under the guidance of a faculty member. Campers can open the door to this opportunity by registering for composition lessons on the camp enrollment form just as they would for any instrument or voice.

In addition to writing new pieces at camp, many composition students bring pieces with them that they have already written at home, so they can have them performed at one of the many camper concerts during the session. Because of our busy schedule of camper and staff concerts, Encore/Coda is a great place for campers to be able to hear their compositions performed, much to the delight of staff members and fellow campers!
