BOOM — Broadway Official Online Masterclass — presents a rare opportunity to study one-on-one with six of Broadway’s hottest composers, librettists, and lyricists. Aspiring composers and writers will present their work to Broadway masters working in the industry and receive live feedback during weekly sessions of the Musical Theatre Composing/Writing Series.

The first two weeks are complete. The remaining 4 week intensive spans Oct. 31 through Nov. 21 and features two three-hour sessions each week — Saturdays at 11 a.m. (EST)/4PM GMT with the guest artist and Tuesdays at 5 p.m. for review and discussion with the series host. Please note, sessions will be recorded for future access, in order to accommodate the busy schedules of the paid participants.
