composer mentoring



ANTOINE BEUGER - COMPOSER MENTORING
_____________________________________________________________________



background 
2008, canadian composer andré cormier asked me, whether i could imagine having him as a student for an intensive period of study (3 weeks). 
i had been teaching and coaching composers on a private (non-institutional) basis for many years, but never had thought of anything like this before.
being very enthusiastic about the idea i happily agreed.
helped by a grant of the canadian council of the arts andré came to düsseldorf july 2009.
this  very positive experience (both for andré and for me) inspired me to think of a way to make this opportunity available to other young composers as well, so they may benefit from my long-standing experience not only as a composer and teacher, but also as a concert organizer, performer and publisher.
 
format
you come to düsseldorf for a mentoring period of 1, 2 or 3 weeks.
your stay will be an intensive period of study, discussion, analysis, commentary, advice, support based on your personal needs and wishes.
we work out a personal work plan and meeting schedule.
in addition, since i am engaged in a very lively concert series for experimental music in düsseldorf, you are likely to meet other interesting composers and musicians.
also, including some of your music in these concerts might be possible.
