BM - Emphasis in Music Composition
In addition to core courses required of all Bachelor of Music students, Composition majors enroll in a five semester sequence of lessons (small group and private), as well as two semesters of Computer Composition. Related coursework required of Composition majors includes Orchestration, Counterpoint, and Form and Analysis. Throughout this course of study students create a portfolio of work demonstrating competency in a variety of instrumentation, genres, and forms. Composition students draw upon a deep pool of talented performers at UTA affording them an opportunity to hear and record their work. A Theory/Composition Lab is appointed with notation, recording and interactive computer software and relevant hardware. Composition majors present a recital of original work toward the end of their studies.
