MUSC 330 Composition I


This course introduces the student to the fundamentals of music composition. Through analysis of existing works from numerous styles and traditions, compositional exercises, and instructional guidance in the students’ own creative compositional work, students learn to envision, plan, and execute compositional ideas and realize them using current, commonly employed tools and processes, with focus on the deliberate and controlled use of all musical parameters as structural as well as expressive elements.  Classroom performance of works, both in progress and finished, is an integral part of the instructional method, as is the examination, discussion, and critical feedback of all students’ work, both by the instructor as well as by their peers.
