Welcome to the Music-COMP online mentoring site. Registration is required for all students to participate in mentoring with a professional composer. To register, please complete the following steps.

1. Complete the Mentoring Permission Form 
The Permission for Mentoring form must be completed and submitted before Music-COMP administrators will allow access to the mentoring site. Any student who is already 18 year of age may sign their own form, but it still must be submitted before entry. Once completed, please email the permission form to matt@music-comp.org


2. Payment 
Fees must be paid before posting a piece to the site. Some schools pay the mentoring fees, others ask parents to pay or contribute a portion to the fee. To pay for independent students or school students via credit card, please use the link below. If you are a teacher and using a PO or school account to purchase mentoring for your students, please email the information to matt@music-comp.org

3. Register on the Music-COMP mentoring site and post a new work
Within this password protected website, Music-COMP matches each student with one or more composer mentors for feedback on the student’s developing work. The most effective mentoring occurs when students communicate with their mentor on a regular basis. All comments are preserved within the discussion thread and e-mail notification occurs to the student, their mentor, and any teacher observers when any new comment is posted to that work.
