About Dick Goodwin
Gordon (Dick) Goodwin has composed hundreds of works ranging from jingle to opera, jazz band to symphony orchestra. It would be difficult to determine which of Dr. Goodwin's contributions to the arts community should be emphasized. He is a composer, arranger, performer (in many genres), studio producer, conductor and leader of both classical and jazz groups, and he is a distinguished teacher.
Goodwin has written hundreds of
arrangements for the Carolina Marching Band and other groups across the country
and has composed and arranged several school songs including Heathwood Hall,
Hand Middle School and A.C. Moore (Columbia). Many of the pieces that we
associate with the University of South Carolina (the Alma Mater, the Fight
Song, "Go Carolina", "2001", etc.) were composed and/or
arranged by Goodwin.
