Composition and Coaching
Coaching – Performance
As a performer in public for many years, DJ Wilson has developed an ear and an eye for what works, for cohesion of idea and delivery. Coaching for performance is finding the successful presentation for a show, a concert or an audition.
Coaching – Composition
DJ Wilson has composed over 13 musicals. All have been produced. She also has written secular and sacred cantatas, both choral and solo. As a collaborator, she values the creation process with other people and ideas.
This composed this in a soft lullaby style but DJ has set it with an off-beat unexpected melodic rhythm designed to wake the hearer up, softly.
A Little Hike
DJ Wilson has created this as a walking, musical story. First, moving uncertainly up a mountain on a narrow trail and not being sure about the footing. Then, the crest is attained and the music reflects this. The descent is begun confidently. A joyous accomplishment!
This is a romping gospel affirming the goodness of life in all ways.
Another musical story this time featuring a golden retriever pup who is busy discovering his world. Complete with sudden starts, stops and changes in course, the music reflects his explorations. Manzy is playful, delighted, startling and satisfied. All in music.
DJ Wilson improvises and arranges two Christmas Carols together. In studying with her, you can discover how to play carols or Holiday songs in a new way for yourself or a gathering of family and friends. “We work together to develop the skills you need.”
