EVCRT 113/114 — Orchestration

Jude Vaclavik
Orchestration is an essential course that teaches composers the skills of writing for orchestral instruments. There are weekly hands-on and interactive activities, which include live demonstrations, composition readings, and question-and-answer sessions with guest instrumentalists. Students compose for every instrument in the orchestra across both semesters. During the fall semester, the class explores strings, harp, and percussion. During the spring semester, the class explores winds and brass. Each semester culminates in a mixed-ensemble reading of original transcriptions. The final projects are read and recorded by students of the Juilliard College Division. This is a yearlong course; students may enter in either semester. Prerequisite: familiarity with music notation software, such as Finale or Sibelius. Placement interview required.​

13 weeks and 2 credits per semester 
Wednesday 6 – 8 pm
September 13 – December 13

$1,050 plus $125 musician fee per semester

Students may register online after they have interviewed and been accepted.
