A (Very) Young Composer Gets His Chance At The New York Philharmonic : Deceptive Cadence : NPR

A fabulous piece about a NYC program to help kids become composers.

“Some of these kids have trouble locating middle C on a piano,” Deak says. “Does that mean they can’t compose music of depth? No. What do they have to do? They have to hum it for us, sing, whistle, tap the rhythms — even if they can’t notate them — and we get their piece.”

Just because you didn’t have music lessons doesn’t mean you don’t have music.
