WE HELP GET YOU THERE
Majoring in music composition can take many forms. Some schools offer composition majors in limited specific genres, while others have more open-ended, genre-bending programs. Some students want to emulate their heroes in jazz and classical composition, while others hope to strike out and develop their own unique style and musical voice.
Studying music composition in college means diving into what makes certain styles sound distinct from others. From chord structure and the philosophy of melody and harmony to cultural aspects that left an impression on the music, these are all subjects the composition major in college must tackle..
With the guidance of our consultants and their list of best-fit music performance schools in hand, an IMS student has a greatly increased chance of getting into the school that is right for them.
Through rigorous exploration of the student’s interests, career aspirations, and enrichment goals, we develop an individualized preparatory program of mock musical theater auditions, portfolio development, and admissions interview strategies with decades of experience in music education admissions.
Our commitment to one-on-one support and guiding students through the admissions process has launched hundreds of fruitful educational journeys.
