Composer Ted Goldman began college at Columbia University as a physics major while studying classical piano with Juilliard professor Robert McDonald. He turned to composing halfway through his degree as a way to combine math and music, and then continued on to get his Doctorate from Juilliard, during which time he won international composing prizes, including two ASCAP awards.
While he was writing his dissertation, Dr. Goldman was hired by the Eastman School of Music to teach music analysis. He taught at Eastman for three years before leaving the tenure track to come to Arizona and spend more time composing, hiking, and being with family.
Dr. Goldman's music has been performed across the United States, Europe, and Asia. His most recent commission is for the 100th Anniversary of the US National Park Service, and will be performed indoors and out at Parks and neighboring cities around the country in 2016-2017.
