Choral Music Composer

ElaineHagenberg.com – Des Moines, Iowa

When she is not teaching vocal music or running around with her four kids, Elaine catches little moments of space to compose. When she finds those moments, she sits down at the upright piano. She still prefers taking notes (literally) with a pencil and paper, and has developed a short hand for capturing her ideas then entering them into her computer. During my time with Elaine, I was inspired by her discipline. She has a deep need to create but she has harnessed it and been able to get her work published and performed even amidst the busyness of life.
