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.
During Opus 30, students were interviewed to see what they think about writing music, the composition process, Opus events and more.
Thank you to LCATV for all of their help.

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.
