Group Lessons of Music Composition

Tuesday from 20:00-21:30 h | Start date postponed to 7 March

Sara Zamboni

For whom
Does music have a special place in your heart? Are you curious about how music is created from scratch? Do you play an instrument and/or enjoy making your original musical material? Are you a volcano of musical thoughts but struggling to find a way to organize them? Would you like to discuss your ideas & aesthetics in an open, respectful, and creative environment? Or perhaps just being inspired? Then this course is for you!
(minimum age: 18 y)

This composition course organized in group lessons is open to anyone interested in music. Playing an instrument or being able to read a score are not necessary. Students will be exposed to some repertoire but also free to bring their favorite songs, open a discussion and ask for constructive feedback. Particular attention is paid to sound as a plastic material with infinite possibilities and as the primary building block of any musical form or genre. Music is a non-verbal form of communication but talking about music is a powerful tool, especially if the students are interested also in other media and forms of narrativity. Music is everywhere in our society and has many different functions: everyone can contribute. 
(max 10 students)
