In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Frank J. Oteri, a composer and editor of New Music Box for the American Music Center, talks about how to get your compositions performed. Like any oportunity in life, it comes from who you know. Frank encourages young composers to not write a piece for a group that they do not have access to. Write and compose music that you know someone will play. One of the best resources for students are their professors and composers at their universities.
