What is the Donemus Academy?

Schermafbeelding 2017-08-16 om 20.05.56Young composers regularly ask Donemus for support. After finishing their education at a conservatory, they jump into a new phase where they need to survive as a composer. Many topics require special attention. Apart from composing in and of itself, composers need to know about author rights, funding, entrepreneurship, Buma/Stemra, programming, and publishing, to name just a few of the ever-increasing number of topics. 

The Donemus Foundation started Donemus Academy to guide new composers on these topics. There will be discussions, reflections, presentations, lectures, and hands-on training in specific areas in order to give beginning composers the tools necessary to survive in contemporary music life.
