This resource provides three templates for model composition assignments that can be used in post-tonal theory courses at either an upper-level undergraduate or graduate level. They cover a composition engaging motivic development and symmetry, a composition based on set classes, and a serial composition. These templates could be used as the basis for assignments or in-class exercises, or they could provide models for how to address more open-ended prompts. Sample realizations of these templates are included.
