A thorough review of the Jubilee College of Music master's program has resulted in a decision by the faculty leaders of that College to put more emphasis on contemporary classical music composition courses.
On top of the existing composition & songwriting courses, JCM is adding the master's courses "Graduate Applied Music: Composition I-IV" and "Performance Program - Composition I-III."
The program area is also being strengthened by the addition of teaching faculty Steed Cowart, Ph.D. in JCM's composition department.
A composer, conductor, and educator, Dr. Cowart is currently Director of Contemporary Performance Ensemble and Concert Coordinator at Mills College, Oakland, CA, and Lecturer of Diablo Valley College, Pleasant Hill, CA.
The new courses on composition will begin from the 2013 Spring quarter.
