Music Coding is our School of Composition program. We believe that making and arranging music should be an integral part of any student of music. Our Music Coding workshops and camps give students the skills and techniques to transcribe the music in their mind and imagination and expand their vocabulary and knowledge of music through listening, experimenting and creating.
Being actively involved in the creation of music:
- Wakes up creativity
- Boosts confidence and self-esteem
- Teaches one to respect musical details
- Helps to become a stronger performer
- Improves the retention of music
- Fosters patience and discipline
- Cultivates a sense of ownership
- Lights up their imagination
