About

On the Music - Composition program, you'll learn composition for every genre of music, but you'll also get the chance to specialize in the genre that most interests you. At The University of the Arts, you'll have lots of opportunities to mix your creative juices and collaborate with Film students, Animation students, Theater students, and Dance students, among others. 

Overview

Our Music - Composition majors have composed for live performances and studio recordings. They've re-scored films and recorded them using virtual instruments and samples. They've designed soundscapes for city-wide light shows. 

And they've collaborated with ProJazz in Santiago, Chile, and the Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts in the U.K. Each semester, a professional chamber music ensemble visits The University of the Arts to perform and record students’ work, which is a great way to learn how professional musicians bring your creations to life.

Here at UArts, you'll be taught by faculty who are all in-demand, working professionals.

Career

No two music careers are exactly alike, and as a Composition student at UArts, you'll have the opportunity to create your own path toward becoming a professional music composer.
