curious about pursuing composition as a serious hobby or vocation.
"A lot of people say that they have music running around inside their heads, even when their iPods are on the blink and they aren't within earshot of a stereo system. Does this sort of thing ever happen to you? Now here’s the really big question: Are any of those tunes ones that you make up? If so, might you be a composer?
If you are curious to find out more about what it means to be write music – what sort of things you need to learn, what sorts of gifts you need to already have, and what sorts of opportunities there are for composers – why not come explore such things at a workshop at Calvin College?"
Conducted by: David Fuentes, Professor of Composition and Theory, Calvin College
