Composition

Tania León, Director.

The composition program develops the unique musical voice of each composition student through exposure to a broad range of compositional styles. Each composition student, both undergraduate and graduate, receives private composition lessons for each semester they are in the program.

Residencies are available within the Conservatory's numerous ensembles as well as in the Brooklyn College Center for Computer Music. Collaboration opportunities abound with students in the Television and Radio, Theater, Art, and Performance and Interactive Media Arts programs.

The composers produce two concerts each semester with additional performance opportunities on the International Electro-Acoustic Music Festival. Composition students also produce an electro-acoustic music CD each year.

Each year six to eight prominent composers give seminars to the composition students as part of the Brooklyn College Composers' Forum series.
