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 which may be produced through any creative practice including (but not limited to) performance, installation, musical show, etc. Students will be expected to complete most of their compositions/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 weekly, however, there will be in-person individual meetings and smaller group meetings throughout the term when necessary.
