The Composition Studio Welcomes You

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.
