Senior Work

Senior Work
Senior work is not required of all music majors and joint majors. However, students interested in and eligible for departmental honors (see guideline above, in "Departmental Honors" section) may propose one or two-semester Senior Work projects. Projects may be in history, composition, theory, ethnomusicology, performance, or electronic music, and should culminate in a written presentation, a public performance, or a combination of the two. MUSC0704 does not count as a course toward fulfillment of the music major.

Project and budget proposals for Independent Study and Senior Work should be submitted by the previous April 1 for fall and winter term projects, and the previous October 15 for spring term projects. Budget proposals will not be considered after those dates. Project proposals will be considered after the deadline but are more likely not to be approved due to previous commitments of faculty advisors or other scheduling reasons.

Tablet Music

Making Music with Tablets and Smartphones
In this course students will compose and perform music using only tablets and smartphones as musical instruments. Students will form groups, compose and improvise, and develop performances. Through student research projects, we will study what musicians and researchers are doing with this new medium. No musical experience is required other than a love of music, an open mind, and a willingness to experiment and explore. All students must have access to an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet throughout the month)
