A 3-Week Lifelong Learning Workshop at CCM: A Composer’s Life

February 12, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

- $40

Join Concord Conservatory of Music faculty member, concert pianist, and composer, Keith Kirchoff, as he offers a three-week course on what is it like to be a composer. We may have a romantic vision of the musician struck with a melody while lounging on a Parisian terrace, but the reality is far more complicated. This 3-week workshop will explore the various approaches, horror stories, and successes of composers both historical and present-day. The class will look at such questions as: what leads to a piece? How does a composer write? Which choices are consciously made, and which are intuitive? How does one deal with failure and rejection, and make a living?
Each class is highly interactive, and no musical experience is necessary. This session will meet on Monday, February 12, 26, and March 5 from 1:00 -2:30 pm at the Concord Conservatory of Music. The fee is $40 and is payable by check made out to CCM, or you can register online at https://concordconservatory.org/Lifelong_Learning
