I teach composition to students in their 2nd year and beyond, along with Music Dept colleague Jef Gibbons [ firstname.lastname@example.org ].
Beginning fall 2016 our approach will be:
Students interested in studying composition will first take MUSI 340 (Intro to Digital Recording) with Jef. They will follow this with the first course in composition (MUSI 327A for 2 s.h.), again with Jef. Serious students wishing to pursue acoustic composition after that may request lessons with me. Those working in digital media continue with Jef.
The course involves individual private lessons with the instructor, and sometimes also a common weekly class for students at all levels.
