What is the Junior Composer Program?

The Endless Mountain Music Festival (EMMF) and the Science & Discovery Center (SDC) collaborated to develop an educational program for students of all ages in school and college. The purpose of this pilot program is to combine STEM elements with music utilizing technology to guide students in scoring their own inspired compositions. STEM learning, along with computer programming, plays a crucial role in aiding students to score their own compositions.

What does the Junior Composer Program entail?

Students received masterclasses from eight Hollywood composers who are performing at the 2021 Endless Mountain Music Festival. Educators from the Science & Discovery Center aided students in using technology to achieve their compositional goals. The eight composers judged winning entries in each category: elementary school, middle school, high school, and college.

Winning composers, along with their families, were invited to the 2021 Endless Mountain Music Festival concert on July 17, 2021, at Steadman Theater at Mansfield University to meet and speak with some of the Hollywood composers. Above are some of the program videos made by students!
