Course Programmes in Performing Arts Music Composition

Courses are a great way for you to continue your education without enrolling in a bachelor degree program. You can take them to increase your knowledge and skills in a topic that interests you. Courses can help you prepare to enter the job market or bridge the gap between high school and a college degree.

What are courses in composition? Just as music spans a wide array of styles and genres, these courses cover just about every possible type of music. You can learn how to compose jazz, hip-hop, or rock music, or you can study composition for film or television. If you are interested in serious concert music, you can learn about the components that make up operas, symphonies, and chamber music.

You can gain several useful skills in composition courses, such as the ability to analyze and understand complex musical scores. In addition, you might learn critical thinking and listening skills, both of which transfer to all professions.

The cost for courses in composition will depend upon various factors, such as length of the course and the tuitions and fees charged by the school. You should contact the programs in which you are interested and get an estimate of expenses.

When you have finished your courses in composition, several career paths may be open to you. You might pursue work as a film or television score composer, a video game sound designer, an editor or publisher of music, or a sound engineer. With further education, you could pursue a career in academia as a professor or composer-in-residence at a university.

You can choose to take courses in composition from schools around the world. Some institutions offer online coursework as well if you require a more flexible schedule. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
