Composition Group, taught by Yaniv Nachum
Focusing on the student's own repertoire, this ensemble will provide a set-up of compositional techniques and develop the student's insight into their own repertoire. Different composition techniques are addressed and diverse forms are used, from the traditional jazz forms to the structured/free improvisation forms. Students are also encouraged to give suggestions about the compositions of others in the group. Students are expected to write a new composition every three weeks, each one in a new style, and arrange it for the setting of the ensemble. Credits are only awarded if the assignments are completed within the given time frame.
