Some high schools and many university programs in the U.S. require the completion of a project, thesis, or portfolio before a student can graduate. Completion of the project demonstrates a student has mastered their studies.
In Luke's case, he is studying music composition. It is a common requirement for students studying music composition to write music and have it performed.
