Prerequisites Needed to Study Music Composition in Canada
Admission standards for music composition programs tend to be quite high as the program is competitive. Applicants have usually studied music extensively for several years, and some may be expected to submit taped samples of their work. At some institutions, students are admitted to composition programs in second year after an evaluation of their performance in a first-year composition course. There are usually academic requirements, though like most other B.F.A. programs, outstanding academic marks are not the key to entry.
