CCM, Composition, Musicology and Theory

Students of these disciplines at the College-Conservatory of Music acquire a broad knowledge of the field and its multidisciplinary practices. An emphasis on writing, cognitive skills and analytical techniques in the principal styles and genres enables the pursuit of individual methodologies and ensures independent thought. Contextual studies form a curriculum that enables the student to comprehend the conditions under which music was written, performed and understood in its own time and in current reception.

Prominent composers, historians and theorists visit CCM regularly to teach, lecture and meet informally with students to discuss their own work and that of other musicians. These visits add a valuable element to CCM's commitment to the creation, performance and recognition of new music and music research.
