Composition Student Handbook


Recordings of composition concerts and reading sessions that are recorded by recording services are posted on the UNT Recording Services website, usually within a week of the event.

Score Preparation Resources

The composition division has binding equipment and supplies available for use by all composition students to bind scores and parts with standard comb spines. These supplies are housed in the CEMI/Composition Office (MU 2001); please contact a composition faculty member or graduate assistant for access.  For printing scores and parts, students should refer to the Printing Policies and Information section of the Music Computer Lab and Studio website.  

Bulletin Board

The composition bulletin board is located across from MU 207. All composition students should regularly check this board for important information pertaining to the division including upcoming events, student opportunities, and current news concerning composition students and faculty. Materials must not be posted or removed from the board without first consulting with the division chair. Any items posted without prior approval from the division chair will be removed from the bulletin board.

Score Submissions

Any physical materials submitted to the composition program (e.g., submissions for orchestra readings, application portfolios), as well as any unreturned composition coursework, may be retrieved from the administrator coordinator's office (MU 242). These will be kept on file for one semester before being discarded.

Campus Resources

The UNT Career Center can assist with all aspects of a job search including career exploration, resume and cover letter writing, interviewing, and job search strategies.  The UNT Counseling and Testing Center provides service to UNT students in a wide range of areas, including individual, group, and career counseling, and addressing such issues as performance anxiety and generalized career stress.
