Broadway Composers & Lyricist Perspectives: Tin Pan Alley
Sure, you've heard of Gershwin, Berlin and Porter, but how about Kay Seift (the first woman to score a hit musical) or James P. Johnson (one of the few black men to break the racial barriers of Tin Pan Alley and the composer of the "Charleston")? In this behind-the-scenes look at the lives and works of composers and lyricists who shape Broadway history, we will be getting to know some of the important, yet forgotten, composers and lyricists of Tin Pan Alley.

"What I love about this class is Joey's approach: it's the humanity behind Broadway. I love learning about the humanity behind it because it is as rich as what is happening on stage. It also helps me, as an artist, to see the progression of the art form - where we are today versus where is was - and then, what was going on in that period historically in regard to war versus peace or politically or civil rights or race issues in the United States and abroad. It's so rich and layered and really rounds out the story." - Renee C., student
