This course is specifically targeted at students interested in music composition. Students will work with Professor Reynolds to hone their music composition skills. As the final project, students will create a composition that will be recorded by a professional quartet, the JACK Quartet (see http://jackquartet.com/). Two of these compositions selected by the quartet may be performed in a public concert at the National Gallery of Art or Library of Congress. It is the expectation that enrollment will number between 6-8 students drawn from all UC campuses. Acceptance in this course is by invitation of Professor Reynolds. Students not accepted into this course may still participate in any of the other Arts courses at UCDC.
