Students create musical compositions to share with a live audience, achieving unique self-expression. Through private lessons with experienced composers, students broaden their understanding of music theory and composition techniques.


Each student creates and manages their own ensemble, scheduling rehearsals and directing them. We exercise time management skills in a group setting and face the challenges of holding peers to high expectations in an environment that remains fun and fulfilling.


"Resonance" celebrates synergy, exposing the value of collaboration with others. Students seek their creative ideas and hard work blossom into group efforts, culminating in a rewarding performance among supportive audience members.


In addition to sharing their ideas with a live audience, students involved with Resonance present their ideas and ongoing progress to fellow peers in monthly forums. Guest composers offer discussions and insight to the art of composing music.
