Junior Composers Summer Programs (JCSP) are programs for students desiring to develop their music composition talents. Under the mentoring of our professional faculty, students are expected to compose at least one work during each week of their given program. Each new work is later presented in a final salon performance. At this culmination performance, students have the chance present their own compositions and are strongly encouraged to assist in performing at least one work written by a fellow student.

Summer Teacher Training Institute: Courage, Creativity, and Authenticity             July 14-18, 2017

In Avivo's signature workshop, participants practice the art of learning and teaching music through improvisation and engage in playful exploration of their artist-selves.

TTI 2017 will be informed and guided by excerpts from David Whyte's poetic text, Crossing an Unknown Sea: Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity. Our time together will include Creative Activities in Musicianship and Rhythms; Pedagogy Roundtables; and a multi-session Choral Experience.

Courage, Creativity, and Authenticity is for musicians, private teachers, classrooms teachers, and choral and instrumental ensembles conductors who wish to learn more about themselves as artists, musicians, and educators who want to infuse their music-making with new life!
