School of Music and Dance Faculty


The School of Music and Dance has the largest full-time, in-residence music faculty between Los Angeles and the Canadian border. We attract faculty from across the globe, including professors from Korea, China, Israel, Ghana, Brazil by way of Russia, and France. Each faculty member is renowned in their field and actively performs and presents research all over the world. Our faculty network attracts top notch guest artists and lecturers who can give students a first-hand glimpse into the lives of working artists and scholars beyond our campus.

Studio Model

A studio-based education combined with a low faculty to student ratio allows School of Music and Dance students to interact with full-time faculty in private, one-on-one weekly lessons. The school is large enough to offer more than 30 ensembles for student performance, yet small enough for individual attention from approachable, engaged professors.
