Shane Dittmar

Shane Dittmar

Biography

Shane Dittmar (they/them) is a blind composer, writer, and teacher who does everything loudly. As a songwriter, they combine moving and memorable melodies with witty, evocative, and often tongue-in-cheek lyrics that you can't help but sing. School, community, and professional choirs on three continents have performed their award-winning compositions. Their original musicals, with honest stories about lovable and under-represented characters, have been featured at Roundabout Theatre Company and in concerts across the country. Shane works during the day as an accessibility specialist and has a passion for music education, a guide dog named Chevelle, and an infectious - and very loud - laugh.
