The Composition major is devoted to educating able and creative women by studying various aspects of music through scientific methods of music education. Once a week, each student receives a private lesson in theory and practice.

Through the study of musical analysis, counterpoint, orchestration, contemporary music, and other allied courses, each student learns the techniques necessary to develop her own originality in composing music. In addition to being tested for requisite piano proficiency upon entrance to the university, students are trained not only in reading, listening, and playing of music, but also in areas such as score reading and class instrument.

Every Thursday, all composition majors meet to perform their original compositions, which are analyzed and assessed in groups. Students have the opportunity to listen to prominent guest lecturers and take part in various extracurricular activities. Depending on the their ability, students also have the opportunity to perform original compositions in open recitals.
