EUSMARTComposer Webinars for young composers

EU SMART Composer is an Erasmus+ programme to develop a methodology to support VET Music Educators in their teaching to music students who compose new music.

EU SMART Composer practical tool will facilitate VET Music Educator-Music Students knowledge transfer to improve their employability.

Smart Composer is a two-year strategic partnership project funded by the Erasmus+ programme that brings together six European partners to explore music education and composition methodologies for educators as well as the branding, digital marketing and entrepreneurship skills that are necessary for young composers today.

Society has changed significantly over the past decade. Music students study harmony and creative techniques to compose new music during their studies at music institutions, while composers are expected to meet with orchestras and ensembles etc interested in commissioning a piece of music.

The Smart Composer project aims to help composers upskill in order to foster their employability and the sustainability of their projects.
