Group or single lessons with different tutors

The available spots for composition were booked-up extremely quickly. There are waiting lists:

Waiting list Composition (female/non-binary)

Waiting list Composition (male)


In the field of composition, we’d like to increase the presence of female composers.
To achieve this, there are two different REGISTRATION links: One for female and nonbinary composers, one for male composers. Please support our aim and be fair when choosing where to click on! Thank you very much.

🏖 Composers who were notified by us that they are accepted for a workshop will receive an e-mail in the next days with instructions how to register for composition. We are reserving these places. Please do not use these links here for booking, but wait for our message. It helps us to have a better overview.

If you’ve registered for Composition, you are right to expect to get in close contact with the composition tutors of the Darmstadt Summer Course. All composition tutors can plan individually how they would like to organize their classes: in small groups, as one-to-one lessons, in the form of special workshops, with or without selection procedure etc.
For several workshops calls will still be open during the registration period, please look for updates on this website and in your e-mail inbox regularly.

Early enough before the Summer Course all registered participants for composition will receive an e-mail in which we ask for your preferences concerning the tutors in order to find out for which tutors there is the highest demand. This will be compared and adjusted afterwards according to the tutors’ timetables. We cannot guarantee a place with a certain composer, but we try to find fair solutions together with the tutors to comply your interests in the best way possible. In addition, there will be plenty of other offers (last minute places, Visiting Composers) and open formats during the Summer Course.
