STUDY JAZZ COMPOSITION
All successful jazz musicians are composers on some level. Everyone writes their own tunes. Others become composers of music for larger jazz ensembles, studio orchestras, electroacoustic music, film work, and contemporary composition in many other areas. Jazz composition courses at the NZSM give students a fundamental set of skills in jazz composition and arranging, while creating a substantial, practical portfolio of new music for ensembles of various sizes and instrumentation. Undergraduate students who complete these courses have the option to pursue degrees in jazz composition at the Honours, Master’s and Doctoral level.
