Michael Mauldin was born in Texas in 1947. He moved to New Mexico in 1971 for “its space, light and timelessness.” Since then he has completed a Master of Music degree in Composition at the University of New Mexico. He has served as president of the New Mexico Music Teachers Association, the Albuquerque Music Teachers Association, the New Mexico Composers Guild, and as national chairman of the Music Teachers National Association Student Composition Contest.
He was named the national Composer of the Year in 1980 by the Music Teachers National Association, Teacher of the Year in 1984 by the New Mexico Music Teachers Association, and Private Teacher of the Year in 1996 by the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra. He served for seven years as Musical Director of the Albuquerque Boy Choir (of which his sons, Kendall and Kevin, are alumni), which grew to three choirs, 85 boys between the ages of 7 and 17, who tour, record and proceed through a rigorous musicianship program. His choral compositions have sold thousands of copies in the USA, Europe and Australia. Mauldin has been an outspoken advocate for the rights of children, holding that discipline is more than repression, and that society is repaid when children and young people are treated with respect, participating in important decisions regarding their own minds, bodies and spirits.
