Cathy Neff is a composer of many different genres from classi- cal to jazz, pop to religious, country to musical theatre, and loves to work with learners of all ages. Schools K-12, rural, adults, teachers, seniors, and institutionalized. Here are some of her fortes:
Musical adaptations of literature, be it Shakespeare, Greek Drama, classics like Rudyard Kipling, or children’s classics like
E.B. White and Roald Dahl. Let her compose a score for your classroom or theatre production. Examples available upon re- quest.
Artist in residence – where she makes music a hands on adven- ture of discovery. K-6 she does hands on improvisation and cre- ativity sessions where students learn to be free to create, and also to be good appreciators of others’ efforts.
Musical comedy improv – let Cathy train your improv troupe, theatre class, or pianists in the art of musical comedy improve Meet the Composer – what is it like to be a composer? What tools do they use? How do they get ideas? Let your group learn from a living composer, which is a rare and unique opportunity. Let her make a song out of your name!
Guest conductor – let your choir, band, orchestra, percussion ensemble, or soloists perform some of Cathy’s works and have her come work with them one on one. A truly great learning experience for all concerned.
Got another idea? Let’s discuss!
Cathy holds a Bachelor of Music in Composition/Theory from the University of Nort
