International Songwriting Competition

We are delighted to be partnering with schools from across the globe on this new International Songwriting Competition.

Students from a number of music education institutions, including SAE UK, are invited to submit an original track for a chance to have their music heard and judged by a panel of top industry experts. Prizes include software, hardware and even a free week of summer study as part of LACM’s summer program.

SAE students can submit their original track via the location-specific DISCO’s submission links below for a chance to win exciting prizes judged by industry experts. 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded, including software bundles, hardware and even a free week of summer study at Los Angeles College of Music’s Summer at LACM program.
