California Summer Music

California Summer Music, is a thriving environment for young musicians and composers to learn, grow, and achieve their goals through the unique experience of music making. Every summer, we provide each emerging artist highly individualized, quality musical training and mentoring with CSM faculty and internationally renowned guest artists.

Limited to a small number of composers (usually less than ten), the Composition Program carefully tailors instruction for each participant through at least eight one-hour private lessons. Each emerging composer experiences all stages of the compositional process: sketching, planning, and development of musical ideas, score and parts preparation, rehearsal, and performance. Additionally, all participants meet daily to discuss compositions from a variety of genres, to consider problems they encounter in the preparation of their works, and to review program concerts from a composer's viewpoint. Emphasis is placed on the production of a score that accurately communicates the composer's intentions.
