The Composition and Music Technology major at WAAPA offers specialisations in classical, electronic, film, popular and jazz music as well as sound art installation. The ethos of the composition program centres on practical learning through practical experience, performance and collaboration. At every stage students collaborate on projects in the dance, film, video, electronic arts,  gaming and theatre departments. All students study recording, mixing, mastering and online networking as well as comprehensive composition approaches for the 21st century.


The Composer in Residence program provides access to a range of visiting artists from the community and students are provided with opportunities to engage with industry throughout the course. In addition, all students are involved in the performance of electroacoustic music through the ECUatorial and Aletheia student ensembles, and are encouraged to work with music performance majors for the performance of their works.

Applicants must apply to TISC and also directly to WAAPA. Admission is based on audition (including a theory test) and interview. Applicants must also meet ECU's academic admission requirements.
