Barrett Ashley Johnson holds a Ph.D. in Music Composition and Minor Area Study in Music Education from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. Johnson is both composer and music educator, having taught music theory/class piano at the University of Arkansas and the University of Texas. As a composer Johnson writes music in a wide variety of media including large orchestra, chamber ensembles, solo works, & electroacoustic works. His electroacoustic works have been combined with animation in such art film shorts as Time-Varying Travel in a Time-Varying Transport and Les Acrobaties, being featured in the inaugural season of the Red Stick Animation Festival.
Johnson’s monograph portion of his dissertation, titled A Comparative Study Between the Pedagogical Methodologies of Arnold Schoenberg and Nadia Boulanger Regarding Training the Composer, reveals the teaching materials and methods of these two famous twentieth-century musicians in light of the philosophies of music educators David Elliott and Bennet Reimer.
