The 30-credit master of music degree in composition is the degree for a composer who seeks advanced study in composition. A key feature is weekly private composition lessons (for four semesters) with a member of our internationally acclaimed faculty. Residencies are available within the Conservatory's numerous ensembles and the orchestra, and a broad range of compositional styles is encouraged. Two concerts per semester exclusively feature the work of Conservatory students. Students also complete a minimum of three seminars in style criticism, music history, and music theory.
