Douglas Brown is an Adjunct Professor at Wayland Baptist University who specializes in the fields of composition and music theory, joining the faculty in 2012 and instructing classes in Fundamentals of Music and Music Appreciation as necessary for the Virtual Campus.  Previously at Houghton College, Mr. Brown taught Private Composition, Elementary Composition and Arranging, and the Music Theory Lab.

As publisher at Three Candles Music, Mr. Brown’s primary pursuit is to provide an avenue of promotion for the new music of living composers.  In his own compositions he uses his combined background in instrumental and vocal music to draw from a broad spectrum for writing in the post-minimal style.  Although Mr. Brown composes solos and for all sizes of performing groups, his favorite forces to write for are chorus and instrumental chamber music.  A representative list of his works can be found at http://www.societyofcomposers.org/members/DouglasBrown .

Mr. Brown has a Master of Music in composition from Houghton College in New York and received Music Theory Honors at Wayland Baptist University where he completed his bachelor’s degree in theory and composition.  He has studied composition under John Beall, Gary D. Belshaw, David H. Davies, and Sun Mi Ro, and is a member of the Society of Composers, Inc. (SCI), Christian Fellowship of Art Music Composers (CFAMC), College Music Society (CMS), and the American Society of Composers, Arrangers, and Producers (ASCAP).

Currently working on his doctoral degree at West Virginia University, he resides in Morgantown, with his wife, Jennifer, who also teaches for Wayland in the Virtual Campus.
