Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
Course examines larger forms, extended tonality, orchestration, and atonal and serial techniques. Students compose a string quartet for performance at the end of the semester. Additional assignments include composing piano pieces that make use of compositional techniques studied in class.
