Composing Against the Tide by Jeanell Carrigan


Early twentieth century Australian women composers and their piano music.

There were a relatively large number of women born in Australia between 1860 and 1915 who became composers of piano music. For many of them this was not an easy task. They did not always receive encouragement. Certainly many could not earn a living at this creative work and they battled not only the gender inequality that still largely exists today but also against musical fashion and trends that their works did not always reflect, as well as the backlash which came from being born into a ‘colonial’ country.

This is their story.

Australian Heritage Collection - the piano works of these women have been published in three volumes as researched and edited by Jeanell. Each volume contains a CD of the works within.
A CD Nostalgia has been released with many of these works recorded by Jeanell.  It was featured as ABC Classic FM "CD of the week", November 2016.  All available online: http://www.australiancomposers.com.au/australian-heritage-series/australian-women-composers-piano-anthology-1

Nostalgia by Jeanell Carrigan


Jeanell Carrigan (piano)
Alfred Hill, the Australian composer is reputed to have said “To me there are only two kinds of music - good or bad. All old music has at one time been modern and all modern music will one day become old so why worry? Time is a great critic that puts them in their place”.
The piano compositions on this recording have been deliberately chosen because of their beauty, their inherent musicality, the craft and skill of the composers and their appeal to the listener. Not considered in their selection was any decision based on whether the style was the fashion at the time of their composition. All of the composers on this recording are Australian women who were born between 1862 and 1915.
To support this recording, Dr Jeanell Carrigan has researched and compiled three volumes of scores of these and additional piano works, most of which have not previously been published.  These volumes, together with individual CDs, are available online.

Senior Music by Meryl Jackson-Kew, Aleksandar Vujic

Teaching Resource

A comprehensive resource textbook for Elective Senior Music

Senior Music is a collection of music pieces that are suitable for music study in years 10, 11 and 12.  It has been designed for the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (already covered in our published books 2 and 3), Queensland, Western Australian, Victorian, South Australian and Tasmanian Certificate of Education and Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training. 
Each topic explores the concepts/elements of music-pitch, duration/rhythm, texture, tone colour/timbre, structure/form, dynamics and expressive techniques, as well as unity and contrast.
Further exploration of each music work is enhanced through research questions in the Musicology section of the book.  This section requires the student to use the process of critical and creative thinking when investigating, analysing and evaluating the music. 
All exercises and questions are designed to be analysed at the student's pace and not under examination conditions.  They can be used to enhance practise in writing graphic notation and aural analysis.  Each excerpt of music has a main focus question.  Also included are other activities which will provide various approaches to aural analysis. 
Music educators and students have options to choose which content from the textbook is relevant to their curriculum and study needs.  The book is also indexed.
