Dominic Dousa, a native of Rochester, Minnesota, joined the faculty of the University of Texas at El Paso Department of Music in August of 2004. There he has taught courses in 2nd year theory and aural skills, seminars on specialized topics in theory, and all levels of composition. He holds degrees in music from Ball State University (D.A.), Central Michigan University (M.M.), and Harvard University (A.B. summa cum laude) and in statistics from Iowa State University (M.S.). He also has studied composition in Prague. His primary composition teachers include Jody Nagel, David Gillingham, Craig Weston, and Milan Slavický. Dousa’s compositions have been performed at recitals, festivals, and conferences in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Peru, China, the Czech Republic, and Finland. Two of his song cycles, With a Song in My Heart and Six Songs on the Poetry of Langston Hughes, have been recorded by baritone Gerald J. Blanchard (with Dousa at the piano) and released on the CD “With a Song in My Heart” by Blue Griffin Recording. This CD features art songs set to texts of African American poets. In 2005, Dousa became Composer-in-Residence for the El Paso Symphony Youth Orchestras. In addition to his activities as teacher and composer, Dousa has remained active as an accompanist and chamber musician, and has given scholarly presentations on topics in music theory.
