B.A. in Music — Music Composition Concentration

The Composition Concentration has two tracks.

  • Composition for the Concert Stage
  • Film & Media

Composition for the Concert Stage Track

The Composition for the Concert Stage track of the Music Composition concentration is designed to give the creative student the skills necessary to analyze, arrange, and compose works for the concert stage (i.e. chamber, orchestra, opera, and ballet). The degree stresses not only the creative aspect of music composition, but also incorporates technology and performing areas of music as well. Students get a chance to work with internationally performed composers in developing their craft and technique so that they are prepared to tackle the myriad of opportunities available to the composer today.

Film and Media Track

The Film and Media track is specifically geared towards students interested in writing music for film and other media environments such as video games and television. Students receive training in studio techniques and production through various projects that deal with music and other visual media. Unlike many technology programs, the Film and Media Composition program also involves training in the craft and technique of composition by our internationally-recognized composition faculty.

Auditioning for the Composition Concentration (Concert Stage and/or Film & Media)

Acceptance into the Music Composition program is based on both an interview/portfolio review and an audition. Candidates should perform one representative work on their primary instrument/voice and also present a portfolio of a least two scores (with recordings, if possible) of their original compositions. It is important that candidates have some prior experience in written composition. Scores should demonstrate the candidate's creativity and ability to realize his or her ideas with accuracy and in accordance to conventional notational practices. Candidates should be able to discuss their influences and musical interests as they relate to the field of composition. Some basic pitch matching exercises may be asked of the candidate.
