The music composition studio at Western Michigan University provides students with the necessary skills to succeed as creative musicians. We focus on helping students discover their own creative voice and develop the skills to realize their artistic vision. We provide training in composition for acoustic instruments and digital media. We foster an open environment that embraces aesthetic diversity, individual growth, and community. We have many opportunities for composers to present their work, to write for readings, and to learn from guests.
