Preferred audience: high school students and adults
Houston Dunleavy is a composer, conductor, and educator. He has been Adjunct Fellow at the Australian National University, Musical Director of the Sydney Male Choir, Head of Composition and Production at the Australian Institute of Music and Senior Lecturer and Acting Head of School at The University of Wollongong.
He is now Musical Director of The Brighton Children’s Choir and St Oswald’s Anglican Church, Glen Iris.
His music has been performed around the world, is published by Wirripang, and has been recorded on the Wirripang and Move labels.
Houston works with Laura E Goodin in collaboration with schools' teaching staff to form creative teams of musicians, writers, and performers who will create short music-theatre works that tell their own original stories.
The format is flexible and can range from one-day intensives to visits over an extended time, between which students work with their teachers on the musicals.
