On Friday, Edgar Barroso and myself received seven 13-year old composers in the Huseac Studios. We let them know about some ways we've been composing. And they described their own work in electronic music: they have been using Apple GarageBand to compose, after recording their own sound material. That sounds like a great introduction to composition.
All the best to the professor and the students: you share an exciting project! I hope we'll get to hear your works!
