As a composition major, you’ll develop your compositional personality through the study of a variety of composition techniques, instrumentation, and orchestration. Over eight semesters, while completing the college’s core music curriculum, you’ll build your portfolio through working with a diverse community of musicians, faculty, industry professionals, and visiting artists, gaining real world experience all while earning your bachelor’s degree.

The student majoring in composition will study tonal harmony, counterpoint, tonal and non-tonal compositional techniques, instrumentation, and orchestration. Music literature studied will emphasize the concert music repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries but also will include principal composers and styles from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The student will demonstrate mastery of these skills and concepts, as well as the development of an individual compositional personality and voice, by completing a portfolio of scores that will include (but not be limited to) a number of chamber pieces in smaller and larger forms, a composition for solo voice or mixed chorus, and a composition for full orchestra.
