Manuscript of Lilian by Benjamin Britten, 1929, young composer.
"Lillian" composed by Benjamin Britten in 1929 at age 16.

One of the most extraordinary things about the world we live in today is that is possible for people who would have had no way to be heard or discovered to find a large audience. We are all familiar with child writers but much less so with child composers. This is an exciting time in the history of music. For the first time, we are beginning to see a real body of work by child composers.

If you are a parent or a teacher please introduce your students to these composers. If, by chance, you are a music teacher and already do some composing with your students, then please get in touch with us. We'd love to hear what your students are doing. We are always looking for music by kids to be included in digital editions of Stone Soup. You may write to me, William Rubel, at william@stonesoup.com.

If you have an interest in child composers and would like to help develop this page, please contact me.
