Luna Composition Lab, founded by acclaimed composers Missy Mazzoli and Ellen Reid with Kaufman Music Center, is a program that addresses the gender imbalance among professional composers. Luna Composition Lab provides aspiring young female, non-binary, and gender non-conforming composers ages 13-19 from across the United States with one-on-one mentorship and bi-monthly Skype lessons with an established female composition mentor, a culminating performance opportunity in New York City, and instant access to a network of professional performers and composers. By connecting young women with established female professionals Luna Lab provides positive role models, fosters confidence, and gives these young women an outlet for unique self-expression. Luna Composition Lab is the only program of its kind in the United States, and was founded in partnership with Face the Music at the Kaufman Music Center in New York City.
