extend the existing strengths of our Department. Teaching
responsibilities will include composition and music theory at all

substantial portfolio of digital musical compositions or other media
projects; evidence of public creative activity; competence in a non-
digital instrument; an on-going publication record in music theory,

media; and training in the pedagogy and practice of western music
