Senior Projects (MCO4376.01)

Michael Wimberly

This course will serve as a workshop and forum for senior music concentrators who are planning to present their senior projects in Spring 2022. In this course, we will meet and discuss students’ projects produced through any creative practice, including, but not limited to, performance, installation, musical show, and lecture. Students will be expected to complete most of their composition/installation designs by the end of the first half of the term. The emphasis will be on technical planning, realization of the individual projects, and guiding students in the development of their presentations, which may involve interdisciplinary collaborations, rehearsals, and technical needs. Group critiques and discussions is a crucial part of this process. As part of this course, each student will be required to pick an advisor from appropriate music faculty to advise their particular project. We will meet twice a week with scheduled individual meetings throughout the term when necessary.


Learning Outcomes:
• Receive mentorship with faculty advisor in preparation for senior presentation
• Access campus resources in support of final presentation
• Leadership through the capacities of collaboration in realizing, directing, communicating, and sharing original work
