Music Major, Theory Composition Concentration (B.Mus.) - Undergraduate - 2012 University Catalog

You are viewing the 2012 University Catalog. Please see the newest version of the University Catalog for the most current version of this program's requirements.

The B.Mus. program in Theory/Composition offers students advanced theory training and composition skills as they develop a personal style. A senior recital of original compositions is presented. Students must show evidence of composition skills to be admitted to this concentration.

The Cali School is the home of the Harry Partch Institute, and hosts the largest collection of Partch’s microtonal instruments in the world.  Theory/Composition Majors can take advantage of this unique opportunity to work with Dean Drummond, curator of the instrumentarium, and the Partch Instruments.  Guest composers and theorists are frequently invited to lecture and interact with our students.

The goal of the Theory/Composition program is to prepare students for both the professional music world and for continued study at first-rate graduate and doctoral programs. The Cali School prides itself on being open to all styles and aesthetics of music as demonstrated by the varying styles of the faculty. Students are encouraged to find their own compositional voices, as well as discovering and studying old and new sounds and aesthetics.
