The Student Composers Association at the University of Georgia is home to more than twenty composers, including graduate and undergraduate students. Writing for a diverse array of media, the composers at UGA create work ranging from symphonic to electronic music. Students have access to cutting edge music technology and state of the art facilities in the Dancz Center for New Music. All students participate in weekly private lessons from accomplished and experienced faculty, as well as a seminar for the discussion of pertinent and controversial issues in the field. The association promotes the performance of student works in SCA recitals and the annual Loop 10 project where student composers are challenged with themed interdisciplinary projects, often bringing them into collaborations with creatives in non-musical fields.
