- Administrative History:
- A child prodigy, Henry Cowell played and wrote music, but his iconoclastic parents selectively home-schooled him. His career in music is filled with success--as a composer, conductor, musician, editor, educator, and innovator. Among his pupils were John Cage and George Gershwin; he introduced elements of diverse musical cultures into Western music, including tone clusters. Despite a somewhat scandalous private life, he had a prestigious career and a lasting influence on modern American music.
