The 30-credit master of music degree in composition is the degree for a composer who seeks advanced study in composition. A key feature is weekly private composition lessons (for four semesters) with a member of our internationally acclaimed faculty. Residencies are available within the Conservatory's numerous ensembles and the orchestra, and a broad range of compositional styles is encouraged. At least two concerts per semester exclusively feature the work of Conservatory students. Students also complete a minimum of three seminars in style criticism, music history, and music theory.
Full instrumental scholarships are available for string, woodwind, and brass applicants. Study with world-class faculty and receive professional training while being part of a great academic institution. Conservatory alumni are flourishing in their field, performing in orchestras, opera houses, night clubs, and cutting-edge concert venues, fostering arts organizations and festivals, and teaching in schools across the country and around the world.
The Conservatory is anxiously anticipating the completion of our new Leonard & Claire Tow Center for the Performing Arts, which promises to become one of the borough’s premiere performance venues.
