If you wish to major in composition, you should arrange to meet with the Head of the Composition Department ( Dr. David Vayo ) on the day of your instrumental or vocal audition. Bring some of your recent compositions (scores and/or recordings) with you. If possible, please bring hard copies of scores, especially of any large-ensemble pieces, to the review. Students who have a strong interest but no experience in composing can be admitted as composition majors if their musical background and talents are strong. The decision as to whether to admit such students is based primarily on the results of the applied audition and the interview with the Head of the Composition Department.
