I presented Variations on a Theme of Arnold Schoenberg – An American Composer’s View on November 24 at Sichuan Conservatory of Music in Chengdu, China.

During my visit to the school, I also offered a master class for composition students and took part in two informal classes in the practical application of Schoenberg’s “Theory of Harmony” in progression writing.

Sichuan Conservatory is one of the main music conservatories in China, with some 14,000 music students. More about them is at http//www.sccm.cn/english/index.asp.
