Through private instruction and a variety of music courses, the composition student is encouraged to explore and pursue the world of music in all its aspects with no particular bias with regard to musical “style.” Student composers are encouraged to explore a variety of styles—whether it be atonal or neotonal, avant-garde or post-modern—in order to find the musical language which best expresses their artistic vision.
Another unique benefit for the young composer is the conservatory’s annual New Music Festival, which provides students the opportunity to have original compositions performed in a public setting and allows them to work with respected and accomplished guest composers.
In addition to taking a wide range of music courses, including theory, history, music skills and instrumental performance, undergraduate composers in the Bachelor of Music program participate in Lynn University’s new and innovative liberal arts core curriculum, The Dialogues of Learning.
Conservatory students take 10 core classes, leaving the majority of your education to enhance your musical training.
