4 Expenses Not to Shirk as a Music Composition Major

4 Expenses Not to Shirk as a Music Composition Major
Posted By: Hannah Whittenly on October 02, 2020

Pursuing a major in music composition can provide you with significant career opportunities that can provide meaningful and fulfilling work for a lifetime. Before you begin these careers, though, you must be sure to take your education seriously. One great way to do that is to wisely take on certain expenses to help you gain more opportunities and exposure so that you're better prepared for your future career.

Professional Training


While your major classes will likely include plenty of training from your professors, it's a good idea to augment this training with paid professional training. By working hard to become proficient with one or more instruments, including your vocal instrument, you will gain better insight into how the industry works. Plus, if you show promise during the course of your training, you may find that this exposure helps you to land your first job.

Quality Headphones


As a music composition major, you'll be responsible for creating musical compositions that sound just as good in the studio as they do in a concert hall. To help find the right balance when creating these compositions, quality headphones are a must.



Good headphones allow you to hear every note so that your composition is rich and full.

Good Instrument


If your music composition journey will take you someplace other than vocal composition, then it's important to invest some money in your primary instrument. Using only a basic instrument will communicate to those around you that you aren't all that serious about your major. Plus, nicer instruments have a better sound, meaning that your compositions will sound better when you're the one providing the music.

Concert Tickets


To be good at creating musical compositions, you need to be a good student of musical compositions. Among other things, this means taking the time to see masters perform as often as possible. By listening to musical compositions in their intended venue, you will begin to gain a much greater appreciation for what sounds good and what doesn't, which will help you improve your skills as a composer of music.

When looking over this list of expenses, you may be thinking that you'll never be able to afford all these things as a broke college student. However, any one of these expenses will help you get more out of your major, meaning that you can invest in these expenses over time. By staying focused and working hard to save your money for these upgrades, you will come to value them all the more when you're finally able to afford them.
