Composition Course Info

The quintet felt it was time that their academy students also had the chance to experience new works for their own ensembles and so the Stockholm Chamber Brass Academy Composers Course was created!

Throughout the Stockholm Chamber Brass Academy week every composition student will receive the following:
• The chance to compose a work for brass ensemble of between 5-10 minutes in duration which will be premiered at the Academy

• Individual and Group lessons every day with our composition teacher, Ivo Nilsson, working on a brand new piece for brass ensemble
• Daily rehearsals on your piece with one of the course's brass ensembles
• A public concert of the 5 new pieces by the Composition Course students

• A video and audio recording of your new piece

To apply for the Stockholm Chamber Brass Academy Composition Course each composer will need to:

• Complete the Composition Course application form by clicking Apply to Composition Course below

They will then be requested to submit:

• A short curriculum vitae or biography
• 2 compositions in PDF form of two compositions for different instrumental or vocal settings​

• Links to recordings of the compositions is desirable but not necessary


A sample schedule of the coaching process can be found below although this will be finalised once all of the composers for the academy have been chosen.

• Participants will be selected in the middle of February

• The participants will receive a writing for brass PDF with specific information and examples for composing for brass and a first skype coaching session in March

• Sketches will be coached via Skype in April

• Compositions coached via Skype in May

• Score and parts are expected by the 15th of June
