You’ll work side-by-side with faculty mentors and scholars at every stage

One of our greatest assets is our nearly 60 faculty members, artists and scholars who, in addition to being international leaders in their field, are dedicated to the musical education of students at every level of learning. Our professors are some of the world’s finest and most respected professional musicians, recording artists, researchers, authors, composers, conductors, and educators. Many of them receive grants, awards, fellowships, or other recognition of their scholarship, performance, and creative work. In addition to weekly lessons and classes, faculty interact with students during studio seminars, master classes, colloquia, concerts, and recitals.
