Master of Music in Composition

Contemporary art music of every style and genre are the heart of our composition program. The MM in Composition is a writing intensive degree, with numerous opportunities to write, perform, teach, and collaborate, resulting in a professional body of work that reflects our students’ newly expanded musical vocabulary and high level of craftsmanship.  Butler University offers numerous performance opportunities for our student composers, including readings by all of the large ensembles and performances by the JCA Composers Orchestra, along with high quality performances by the students of the entire Jordan College of the Arts.
