You are expected to complete at least four projects per semester. Manage your time so you complete a project or its equivalent roughly every three to four weeks. At this level, a "project" can be significant progress on a large scale work. One of your projects can be learning a new CAS program or growing into a new area such as writing music for video or animation. See Composer's Tools to stimulate your thinking about composition projects.
Continue to build your composer's toolkit by visiting Composer's Tools and other sources of information about musical patterns and devices. Scores and recordings are good places to shop.
You will playback your work from time to time for a group critique.
The final exam is to present your completed semester porfolio to the composition group.
