Lamont School of Music

Master of Music in Composition

crazyensembleComposers studying at Lamont receive rigorous training in harmony, counterpoint, analysis, conducting, orchestration, digital audio, and, of course, composition. All majors study with our distinguished composition faculty.

Lamont has a high ratio of performance majors to composition majors (currently 290 to 10), so composers have a large pool of talented musicians interested in performing their music. Composers interested in digital audio can take advantage of our digital studio which 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.
