What is Composers Online Institute?
COI is a new online program of Junior Composers Summer Programs (JCSP) in the time of COVID-19. Junior Composers is celebrating its 20th summer this year.
We are excited to be re-imagining the authentic JCSP experience for musicians, amateur and professional:
become colleagues; all genres are welcomed and encouraged;
professional performers read new work; daily instruction in music theory and composition & songwriting; a talented faculty of professional composers; and plenty of interactions with exemplary featured artists.
Who are the other composers & songwriters?
This is the first year of Composers Online Institute and composers of every age will be eligible to participate. For 20 years, we have limited registration to composers age 14-20; we expect many alumni to return but are also hopeful that more composers & songwriters will join us for this more affordable experience.
To ensure camper privacy and safety, personal contact information will be restricted to COI staff and faculty.
