Advanced Composition and Arrangement (W3067)

30 credits, Level 6

Autumn teaching

This module develops advanced practices in musical composition and orchestration techniques, and allows you to work on small-scale compositions and/or arrangements that reflect your own creative interests. Through a range of case studies from the birth of the orchestra to contemporary ensemble music, the seminars focus on practical and aesthetic issues and are geared towards assessed projects as well as helping lay the foundations for larger-scale work. The seminars provide you with peer and tutor feedback, as well as guidance on your assessed projects.
