Composition lessons help students develop techniques and learn counterpoint skills. Application required. Please contact email@example.com.
An application is required for admission to The Composers Studio. Admission decisions are sent the last week of every month, and you may be given the option of getting placed on a waiting list.
Composition lessons are uniquely tailored to each individual composer, and lessons are conducted via Zoom. In addition to lessons, students receive a free copy of the latest editions from The Composing Series.
Styles and Levels Accepted
Any style of music and all levels are accepted, but students must have a basic ability to notate their musical ideas. Kevin Ure does not provide instruction for electronic music unless the music is accompanied by a notated score. He believes that to properly edit a musical work and develop as a composer, the ability to notate ideas is essential.
Each lesson averages about 45 to 50 minutes in length. As students progress, more or less time may be spent on a single lesson. However, the goal is to average the overall lesson time to about 45 minutes per session.
Kevin Ure launched UreMusic.com in 1996, and he has been teaching lessons online since 2003. He teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in music theory and composition at The University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
