EVDIV 151 — Introduction to Composition


Raymond Lustig, Dalit Warshaw
Composers must understand how music functions in order to communicate their ideas effectively. In this course, students build their technical tool kit within an environment of creativity. Through analysis, rigorous practice of techniques, and creative compositional projects, students are encouraged to identify their own musical preferences, find their own technical level, and discover their compositional voice. The course focuses on building a command of the language and a variety of compositional techniques while also briefly touching upon broad topics like score preparation, conservatory training, and the myriad professional outlets for compositional work. Multiple in-class readings of compositions by expert musicians give students practical experience in connecting idea to sonic reality, and students learn the basics of running an effective rehearsal of their work. Visiting artists introduce new perspectives. This is a two-semester course, but qualified students may interview to enter in the spring semester, pending space. Prerequisite: Ability to read music. Placement interview required.
