Composition opportunities have expanded in many ways. The student studying composition can concentrate on classical, contemporary, opera, dance, and many times a combination. Music is realized using technology, ensemble performances including new music ensembles, multimedia presentations, and as part of an opera or dance concert. Alumni of this program often seek to pursue graduate study in programs such as Belmont’s Master of Music in Composition.
