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!

  1. Cathy,
    The Boys & Girls Clubs of Weber-Davis is applying for a UDAM grant for a visiting artist. Are you interested in partnering with us? Three years ago, we implemented Create @ The Club, as our high-quality afterschool and summer arts program and are seeking additional partnerships to sustain our initial effort.
