Western’s graduate programs in composition offer exceptional artistic and academic experiences. Students receive studio instruction from our distinguished faculty, who are committed to providing a stimulating, creative environment in which young composers develop their individual voices and pursue their creative goals. Students receive and create for themselves opportunities for performances of their original compositions, and are encouraged to explore a variety of artistic media and styles. In addition to communicating through original composition, students also discover opportunities to refine their written and oral communication skills in a supportive intellectual environment.
