Guest Composer Lessons, 2011-2012
During 2012-2013, a number of composers will be visiting the Jacobs School of Music and have agreed to spend three hours in semi-private meetings with our students, critiquing work and having discussions. Each lesson will take place in MU333 (Professor Dzubay's Office) or SYC 0014. Three students are sharing each time slot. You are asked to bring one completed work (both score and recording) to the meeting, where about 30 minutes will be devoted to your music. All three composers should stay the whole 90 minutes to take advantage of the insights offered by the guest.
Our thanks to the Student Composers Association for helping to bring in these guests!
