Composers in the Classroom: A Bio-bibliography of Composers at Conservatories, Colleges, and Universities in the United States

A bio-bibliographical dictionary, chronicling the careers and work of over 120 composers associated with conservatories, colleges, and universities in the United States and Puerto Rico, Composers in the Classroom is an indispensable tool to scholars of modern music seeking to research the current state of musical composition and compositional trends of the 21st century. Painstakingly obtained through direct correspondence with the composers themselves, James M. Floyd has assembled for each subject a short biography, which includes information on the composer's education, career, musical commissions, and awards and honors. Each entry also includes a list of the composer's works organized by instrument type or genre, as well as a discography of recordings and bibliography of writings.
