The Composition Studio of the Lawrence Conservatory of Music provides the opportunity for composers to study composition at a nationally recognized conservatory of music and selective liberal arts college. Our students receive comprehensive pre-professional training in music composition and we emphasize frequent performances of students' instrumental and vocal chamber music. We also provide exceptional opportunities for orchestral and large ensemble readings and performance.

Welcome Classes of 2019 and 2020!

Welcome classes of 2019 and 2020! The Composition Academic Information Meeting will take place on Thursday, September 10 at 1:30 p.m. in Music-Drama 259.
