Our faculty are more than just highly skilled and dedicated teachers; they are celebrated artists and scholars. They know how to prepare you for a successful career as a performing artist, educator, entrepreneur, and more, because they have first-hand experience. It’s not unusual for our faculty to grace stages, release albums, and conduct and play in internationally renowned orchestras—all while providing students with thoughtful instruction and unparalleled knowledge about what it truly takes to become world-class performing artists and leading arts scholars.
