Coaching Young Composers in the Trivium Model. We learn in the writings of Plato that classical education incorporated what was called the trivium, which describes the function of content, process, and output in any creative endeavor. In this workshop, Dr. Olson will apply that model to the way that we can cultivate young, artistic composers in our studio, by developing skills in improvisation, notation, and problem solving in their compositions. Using a variety of student compositions as examples, this presentation will examine the ways we can encourage more students to create unique and compelling compositions.
