YMF for Composition is new this year!

Have you wondered how to get your students interested in learning more about music notation and theory? How to make it relevant to them? To get into more depth about composition and musical form?

Please consider the Schubert Club Composition Festival. Each student submits one original composition for any instrument or ensemble, and they receive comments and points toward a Composition Gold Cup. I have found that my students learn so much about music from this experience, and you don’t have to be a composer to help them with the process. It’s easier and more fun than you might think! The rules, minimum length requirements and other information can be found under the YMF tab on, or click here.

The composition submission via email deadline is March 1st, 2020. Please let me know if you have any questions. Wendy Kerner – Composition Chairman
