Composition at EIU

Students who want to pursue music composition at Eastern should enroll in the Bachelor of Music with Performance Option; Composition Concentration. Composition students receive one-on-one instruction in composition and on their primary instrument. Composition recitals featuring student work are given in lieu of performance recitals on an instrument. In addition, Composers' Forum concerts each semester showcase the work of all student composers regardless of their major. Any compositional style is acceptable.
