Master classes

DJBFA / Composers and Songwriters also offers a wide range of carefully organized courses of work, where the participating members work, in a goal-oriented manner, with specific compositions: in a form that reflects each genre’s special needs.

This might involve composers’ sojourns, where each composer works with and develops his/her artistic horizons in connection with other participants and/or while co-writing with other composers and selected “hot-shots” in the setting of master classes. DJBFA covers most of the costs of these programs; the participants themselves are, however, asked to pay a modest participant’s fee.

Through its several retreats and its several apartments situated in a number of music metropolises, the association also presents another offer of inspiration; the association’s apartments have been set up especially with the idea of the composer-in-residence being able to create new music and texts.
