Composition

Face the Music is committed to studying and performing music written by its own student composer-performers! Students applying to the Composition program should also participate in the Performance Program. Students may write a piece for a Face the Music ensemble and have the opportunity to develop that piece in a laboratory environment. Composers at all levels, including beginners, are welcome. Instrumentalists who have never composed before but have always wanted to can use this as an opportunity to compose their first piece of music!
