Our composition course is focused on improving musical creativity, with providing and enhancing tools and techniques. Written assignments will develop musical ideas and notation methods. Several leading computer programs will be used as a tool to explore these and related topics.
Composers apply musical knowledge of rhythm, melody, tone and texture in a variety of ways. They have to be aware of the possibilities and limitations of each instrument, including the human voice.
First, let answer the following questions:
Do you want to compose music that clearly expresses yourself and your emotions in a way that others understand?
Do you want to create music mostly for yourself, but you’re interested in film, TV, and video games?
Do you want to write down what you hear inside your head, and from that create longer works, hit songs, or just a good piece of music?
Do you want to understand how music works?
