Every semester, a number of internationally renowned artists are invited to present master classes as distinguished visiting faculty or guest artists. These classes give you the opportunity to interact with musicians who have performed in the biggest venues and worked with legendary performers. Throughout the years, master classes have been given by important artists such as William Preucil of the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera's Betsy Bishop, Tony Stevenson and Karen Parks, the American Brass Quintet, Nexus, and the Boston Pops' conductor Keith Lockhart and percussionist Neil Grover.
Distinguished Visiting Faculty
How do you get to spend quality time with one of the world's leading musicians? Meet our distinguished visiting faculty. Each academic year, we welcome a group of distinguished visiting faculty members who are among the best in their profession. They lead master classes and performances. And some even work one-on-one with our students in private lessons. But no matter the setting, you'll get a chance to engage these talented artists—and spend more than a few hours with them. They're not here to teach a course. They're here to introduce you to their world.
