We need to reserve quite a big number of spots for people that will be accepted in open calls for workshops. That means two things: If you didn't get a place for composition now, please keep an eye on the list of calls and apply for a workshop that interests you. Or: When all the decisions for the calls are made, it might turn out that we won't need all the reserved places. At this point we will re-open the registration. We will announce this through our newsletter two days in advance.


In the field of composition, we’d like to increase the presence of female composers and are for the first time trying to work with a quota. We are aiming at a 50:50 relation of female and non-female participants in the composition studios as a whole.
To achieve this, we've created two different REGISTRATION links for female and non-female composers. Please support our aim and be fair when choosing where to click on! Thank you.

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: as one-to-one lessons, in small groups, in the form of special workshops, with or without selection procedure etc.
Several calls for workshops are still open during the registration period, please look for updates regularly.
Early enough before the Summer Course all registered participants for composition will receive an e-mail where we ask for your special preferences concerning the tutors so that we can see for which tutors and formats there is the highest demand. This will be compared and adjusted afterwards according to the tutors’ timetables. There is not a guarantee for 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.

REGISTRATION (female): Sorry, at the moment there are no free spots.
