Post-Genre Music prepares 21st-century musicians to perform in range of settings and to be actively involved in the creation of meaningful new work. In a world where musicians can no longer stay confined to a single genre, performers need to be able to survive and thrive in a wide variety of styles of music and, increasingly, in music that combines many different styles into one. Designed to complement intensive instrumental or vocal study, Post-Genre Music focuses on the here and now, drawing on the vast New York City musical landscape to do so. In addition to learning how to perform in multiple contexts, students gain arranging and composition skills and practical experience in technology and entrepreneurship, acquiring the tools necessary to turn ideas into action.
The minor in Post-Genre music requires successful completion of 18 credits across four subject areas, as outlined in the chart below. This minor is open to all students at Mannes and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and to students in other New School colleges by audition.
Course availability may vary from semester to semester. Students seeking to pursue alternative coursework to fulfill the minor should consult with their advisors.
