What Is a Composer?

Gain insight into the creative process of composing and introduce your students to the works of notable composers with this enriching program. Hosted by musician and educator Stephen Titra, this personal portrait profiles three world-class composers. Each with unique influences and styles, the composers discuss their early music training, what made them want to become composers, where they get their inspiration, and the traditional and cultural elements that are present in their compositions. Footage of the composers at work-in the classroom, at the computer, and in rehearsal-demonstrates what it takes to write, perform, and teach music. Examining the personal and work lives of contemporary composers in a lively interview format, this program will increase your students' understanding of composition and encourage them to create their own musical works. A compact disc with a representative work by each composer and a teacher's guide with learning objectives, before and after viewing activities, and reproducible worksheets accompany the program.
