Evening Division Fall 2017 [ARCHIVED CATALOG]


Expand All Courses |

Writing and arranging music can be an exciting and rewarding enterprise. Yet the most proficient composers must have the necessary skills in order to effectively carry out their creative impulses, including a knowledge of music theory, an understanding of the various instruments and their capabilities, a solid grasp of compositional principles and techniques, and familiarity with music notation software. These courses cover the broad range of essential compositional skills and techniques. Some courses are designed for those with little to no experience (and it is strongly recommended that these students also register for a course in music theory), while others are for students with established skills who wish to expand their knowledge and strengthen their work. In nearly all courses, students hear their works performed in class by Juilliard College Division musicians.
