Music Composition Project (MCO4802.01)

Allen Shawn

This is a course for music composition students. Each student produces a sizable piece for a single small ensemble (to be determined), such as a piano trio or string quartet. All students will be composing for the same instrumentation. There are regular reading sessions of the pieces in progress, culminating in a class presentation and taping of the completed works. The class time is used in three ways: for analysis and study of works composed for our chosen medium; for the reading sessions; and for examination of the student’s works-in-progress.
