EU Smart Composer is a methodology to support VET Music Educators in their teaching to music students who compose new music. Its practical tool will facilitate knowledge transfer to improve their employability.

Society has changed significantly over the past decade. Music students learn from their VET Music Educators harmony, creative techniques to compose new music etc during their studies at Music Institutions. Composers are expected to meet with orchestras, ensembles etc interested in commissioning a piece of music.

They have to be equipped with knowledge, technical competencies, hard and soft skills and practical tools to meet the new challenges. They demand a methodology to support music students to improve their employability in this new labour market.
