Composition 3B is the final semester of undergraduate study of the technical and expressive skills for music composition. At this stage, you will have completed a folio of projects designed to establish writing skills and compositional craft, and therefore established the development of your 'voice' through the handling of instrumentation, pitch, rhythm, harmonic language and formal concepts. Through working with composers and instrumentalists on more self-directed projects, you will compose a variety of pieces, interact with ensembles, study new works, and further develop your knowledge of writing and analytical skills to build a portfolio of compositions.
