Advanced Composition: Breaking Out of the Box!

Register Now

Too often we limit ourselves by writing one-measure boxes, or by using only synchronous looping, another kind of box. Expand your composition skills by studying the classics and using them as a jumping off point to try out new ideas and techniques that will help you break out of the limits of the measure and loop. Each session will focus on one composition technique to explore and expand. Students can choose which 2-hour seminars to register for and may attend either in-person or online.
