Master of Music in Composition
Aspiring composers receive rigorous training in harmony, counterpoint, analysis, conducting, orchestration, digital audio, and, of course, composition. All majors study with our distinguished composition faculty. The high ratio of performance majors to composition majors at Lamont (currently 290 to 10) gives composers almost limitless possibilities for the performance of their music. A composer writing music for violin, for example, currently has 28 violin majors to choose from. For students interested in digital audio, a new studio opened in 2004. There is also a recording studio wired to every performance and rehearsal space in the school. Composition students graduate with a diverse portfolio of digitally recorded works.
