San Francisco, CA – The San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM) announces a new Technology and Applied Composition program (“TAC”), an undergraduate degree offering an unparalleled foundation for success in the diverse and evolving music industry. A unique curriculum integrating compositional craft with music technology will launch a new generation of composers adept in the fields of concert music, sound design and film and game scoring. Now accepting applications for the inaugural class of 2015, the Conservatory will produce versatile graduates who thrive as individual artists and as members of a creative team.

An exceptional conservatory curriculum provides a solid framework for the program. Students master cutting-edge production practices, music theory, ear training and orchestration as well as develop critical thinking skills and sound business practices. They study virtual and acoustic instrument design, learn to improvise, and assimilate the history of film and game aesthetics. Working in a set of state-of-the-art audio labs, young composers learn to use the computer and recording studio as instruments to conceive and perform their own acoustic and electronic music.
