Composition 1B continues students' first-year study of the technical and expressive skills for music composition. Over the course of study, you are assigned a sequence of projects designed to establish writing skills and compositional craft, and to develop your 'voice' through the handling of instrumentation, pitch, rhythm, harmonic language and formal concepts. Through working with composers and instrumentalists on specific projects, you will compose a variety of pieces, interact with ensembles, study new works, develop your knowledge of writing and analytical skills, and build a portfolio of compositions.
