      Course description

      The Master of Music (Composition) is a research degree which prepares students for a career in composition. As a student in this course you will be given supervision and guidance to produce a folio of original compositions.

      The folio will be made up of a minimum of two original compositions, in different media, of 50 minutes in duration. You will also produce a CD recording of a performance of at least one work written during the period of candidature. Candidates will receive regular individual lessons and will participate in composition-related activities, including a weekly Composition Seminar and Postgraduate Seminar. Students may alternately undertake a combination of folio and minor thesis (of an equivalent total) with permission of the course coordinator.
