I’m on a Podcast!

composer-quest-podcast-470I was recently interviewed on the podcast Composer Quest about teaching composition to my students, my perspective on composition as a performer, and my ethnomusicology research.  You can listen to it at the link below.

  1. I’ve spent the last two hours reading internet surfing the concept of melody and melodic analysis. This interview has been more helpful (and more enjoyable!) than a lot of traditional and academic articles and excerpts that I’ve read. Wittgenstein said that a miracle is not a thing but a way of looking at the world. For these children, then, everything in music is a miracle.

    • Thanks so much for the high praise! It’s great to hear how this approach to music can be useful to adults, as well as kids. And I love the Wittgenstein perspective; I’ll be keeping it in mind as I teach!
