ABOUT THE WORKSHOP & COMPOSER MICHAEL COLGRASS

Why don't we teach children to compose music? How does thinking like a kid make you a better teacher? These are two of the questions that will be addressed in this dynamic workshop focused on improving creativity and performance skills through the use of innovative and exploratory techniques! Teachers young and old, experienced and inexperienced, and even teachers in training are invited!


Pulitzer-prize winning modern symphony composer Michael Colgrass is coming to UCO for a three-day residency of master classes, performances, and lectures. Colgrass has composed works for the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, and numerous other orchestras, chamber groups, and choral groups in the US, Canada, and abroad. He has been awarded two Guggenheim Fellowships, A Rockefeller Grant, First Prize in the Barlow and Sudler International Wind Ensemble Competitions, and the 1988 Jules Leger Prize for Chamber Music. A published author, Colgrass lectures on personal development and gives workshops throughout the world on the psychology and technique of performance. He has developed a method of teaching children and educators how to compose and create using graphics and movement. In his Key to Creativity workshop, Colgrass will lead participants in composing and performing a piece of vocal music. Educators can take this process back to their schools to teach children using the same system.
