Melbourne-based composer Stuart Greenbaum is currently Lecturer in Composition at the University of Melbourne where he has recently completed his PhD.
Stuart Greenbaum grew up in Melbourne and from the age of 8 made various attempts at constructing guitars out of plyboard, nails and rubber bands. By the age of just 11 years, he was thoughtless enough to bend the silver keys of his first oboe out of shape and by 15 had taken to writing romantic songs at the keyboard. By the age of 18, he joined (with poet, Ross Baglin) a pop group which disbanded before it had really begun. Stuart and Ross kept writing - including work on the opera Nelson. Stuart is currently Lecturer in Composition at the University of Melbourne where he has recently completed his PhD.
