Welcome to Music-COMP, Music Composition Online Mentoring Program. Our mission is to serve students in composition through online mentoring with professional composers and live performances of student work. We provide teachers with professional development through workshops, courses and online training. Music-COMP also develops and shares resources in composition.
Opus 29 featuring 23 new works created by students in grades 3-12 were performed on Monday, January 12, 2015 at the Elley-Long Music Center at St. Michael's College in Colchester. The concert was a rousing success. Watch the Opus 29 page under Performances for the posting of all audio recordings soon. There's also a button there now to order the full concert video recording.

We celebrate the past and current achievements of 25 of our alumni. The impetus to reflect with them came as we prepared for Opus 25 held on January 7, 2013. Read their thoughts on participating in Music-COMP, find out what each is doing now, and hear some of their early works.
Periodically, we'll highlight one or two of our alumni. August's Vermont Public Radio Student Showcase Alumni Feature highlighted Matt Podd. We've included Matt's 25for25 alumni page below as well as his twin brother Adam who is also mentioned in the broadcast.
