3-Week Lifelong Learners Workshop: A Composer's Life

Keith Kirchoff

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.
