2 credits 30.0 hours

A dual emphasis on acoustic instruments and on technologies exposes students to a variety of professional composing situations, including large jazz ensembles, fusion, acoustic/electronic hybrids, films, videos, musical theater, and jingle writing. Techniques using MIDI, MAX, and electronic composition are explored. Faculty and guest composers present workshops on their own approaches. Students learn to use the recording studio as an instrument and use notation software for score and part preparation. Student works are rehearsed and performed by graduate and advanced undergraduate ensembles.

Open to Masters in Jazz Studies only.
