Composer Connection

Started in September 2009, Composer Connection gives young composers a chance to connect with and receive instruction from a graduate student in composition at MU.  

Not all students throughout Missouri have the opportunity to study with a local teacher. In an effort to give students further guidance, the School of Music developed this distance-learning initiative.

Students can e-mail works in progress and questions about composing, and receive feedback and suggestions. The current composer can be reached at
