Prerequisite for the diploma of Composition is the degree of Fuga with a minimum grade of 7.50 “very good”. Composition courses can also be taken, informally, without the student getting a diploma. Knowledge of Harmony is a prerequisite.
A composer is being recognized by his work. When he completes plays for all combinations of instruments, from solo to symphony orchestra, from organ to vocal ensembles and their combinations, in several forms up to the 20th century, then he submits the file of his works to the committee in order to be recognized as a composer. During the lessons the student learns about the latest techniques and modern forms such as dodecahedronism, minimalism, etc. There are analyzes of tonal and atonic music to understand the architectural structures of musical works.
At the same time, the student, in collaboration with the music school and his teacher, presents his works in concerts or records them.
