About Go Compose North America

Go Compose North America cultivates creativity among young people right at the beginning of their journey of musical discovery. We introduce our participants to fun, new music, and we encourage them to experiment with established and innovative ways to express their own unique voices. Our programs nurture a new generation of diverse musical creators.

We offer music education programs and musical development opportunities to participants of all abilities, and our offerings are always expanding! Our mission is to make music creation accessible to anyone.

Go Compose North America was first created to provide innovative online musical experiences to school-aged children during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and resultant school closures. Our intensive workshops, led by professional composers and performers, engage young people from all over the world. ​

Our audience is growing, but our focus remains a safe and secure online environment for participants in both workshop and performance settings. Our primary concern is our students’ safety within a nurturing environment.
