MUS 230 - Composition and Music Software Private Instruction

1-2 hours
In studying composition, students will be led through an exploration of musical forms, sounds, styles, and possibilities, and challenges in an effort to help them become more easily able to develop their own original musical ideas into strong compositions. This is not necessarily traditionally “classical” music composition instruction, but is instead a way for students who might have their own preferred musical genres to learn new, specific and time-tested techniques to help them develop their own compositional talents. Students interested in studying composition are expected to have experience on a musical instrument, as well as some understanding of basic chords, melodies, and music notation.

Prerequisite(s): Consent of the instructor

This course will satisfy the core area requirement in fine arts.
