MA in Composition
Course Description

MUS 236
Music Instrument Building
Spring

The primary objective of this course is for each student to construct a musical instrument of her own design within the duration of a single semester. Guidance is furnished for all phases of the project—conception, design, planning, and construction. Emphasis is placed on maintaining a consistent connection between concept, process, and result, with a working prototype being the primary goal rather than a polished final product. Research on acoustics, electronics, and traditional instrument construction may be required between classes. No prior hand-tool or machine-tool experience necessary.
