GarropWelcome! The Composition Program is focused on challenging our students to realize their utmost potential as composers while encouraging them to explore and discover their own unique compositional voice.  Our award-winning composition faculty are dedicated to giving students a comprehensive education that will prepare them for the professional life and business of being a composer. If you are looking for an intensive music conservatory experience paired with the rich musical and cultural experiences provided by living in a major city, then the CCPA Composition Program will prepare you for a career as a professional composer.  Please browse our pages and contact me if you have any questions you may have about our Program.
