Best Composers Online Institute and best creative learning.
Composers Online Institute is the result of the COVID-19 coronavirus. In early May 2020, it became clear that the annual two-week summer music camp called Junior Composers was not going to happen. After some back-of-the-envelope calculations, the faculty and staff decided to offer a 100% online experience that would emulate the residential camp we've been offering 20 years.
I was one of the faculty members who had been offering songwriting lessons and I had a special affiliation with Junior Composers; I had attended the camp as a high school student and was brought back to develop their pop songwriting program after I graduated from USC's pop songwriting program.
During my time at Junior Composers we began to move out of the classic multi-track recording studio and by the summer of 2019, we transformed or experience to laptops and interfaces...just in time for COVID-19.
This video is on COI's YouTube channel and is a recording of the zoom session where I gave a Creator Salon on my professional experiences and how songwriters have enormous resources at their fingertips. I hope you enjoy!
By the way, we all enjoyed being Randall Davidson for about an hour.
