Faculty & Staff

A Sunderman Conservatory education is distinguished by the close bonds that form between students and their teachers. As a student, you'll work one-on-one with faculty artists and scholars who have earned national and international reputations for their strengths in a comprehensive range of music traditions. Conservatory faculty are skilled performers, composers, conductors, and scholars. They are noted authorities on classical music, world music, contemporary music, jazz, music education, opera, and other areas. Most important, they are outstanding teachers adept at maximizing every student's potential.
