Mentorship Concept

MENTORSHIP METHOD

TEAM POLYVALENCE

A versatile and polyvalent team of five composers, enriched by temporary cooperation with top experts and references in their fields. United in the support of objective beauty, connected to the universal musical sense and diverse in abilities and styles.
 

HONEST BUT GENEROUS FEEDBACK
 

Direct honesty in feedback and critique, with empathy and consideration to take mentees out of abstract and isolated thinking into universal and down to earth understanding. No more complacency or lazy flattering of mediocrity or tolerance of ugliness, and restoring again into academic guidance values: generous, admirative and encouraging support or laudation when talent has met inspiration - and has resulted in blissful and powerful Beauty as immediately sensed by any listener.
 

OBJECTIVE MENTORING CONCEPT
 

To objectively guide the process of making the audience feel and think what the composer intends in the most effective possible way. Negative characteristics and obvious shortcomings are not anymore considered or called 'progressive innovations' - as they do not lead the Mentee to real elevation of skill and craft that could match the great Masters of our illustrious past.
