The curriculum devised by the composition curriculum working group of the Society of Finnish Composers is intended to harmonise the teaching of composition nationwide. Its goals are to encourage children, adolescents and adults alike to create music under the tuition of a professional composer and to offer students equal opportunities in improving and maturing their expressive musical potential through composition. Goal-oriented composition studies foster a broader relationship with the arts, encourage artistic expression, expand musical comprehension and contribute to building an individual identity.
