APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!
Our flagship summer program provides early-career composers the opportunity to compose & premiere a new work, to develop their craft, and to take critical steps in their creative and career development--all under the guidance and mentorship of our world-class festival faculty.
What sets INMF apart is our commitment to preparing composers for both the creative and practical realities of a career in the arts: In addition to the premiere and documentation of their new work, composers participate in private lessons with composition faculty, workshops with performance faculty, as well as Masterclasses, Conducting Workshops, and our innovative Evening Lecture Series focusing on career development topics.

Impulse Workshops allow a small number of participants to study under the mentorship of INMF Faculty specializing in the field, providing a uniquely supportive and personalized experience for you to explore important topics hands on, taking your music creation, study, or career to the next step. Ranging from 10-week long programs to single-day events, each workshop focuses on an essential topic in contemporary music making: From fundamentals of craft, to advanced techniques, to professional development, you'll leave every Impulse Workshop with new ideas, tools, and materials to put you a step ahead.
