This course will emphasize learning concepts and techniques of music composition through the study of music theory and structure used in both classical and popular music forms. Students will compose music using computer assisted composition tools. These tools will include cloud based digital audio workstations and music notation programs. Compositions will be written in these musical styles but not limited to classical, jazz, and popular. The majority of the work will take place during class, but students are encouraged to continue to develop work started in class.
