Academy Teachers and Staff

Academy teachers have extensive training in pedagogy as well as performance experience. Approximately three-quarters of our teachers hold masters or doctoral degrees; two-thirds of our teachers have taught in the Academy for more than 10 years. Guest teaching artists augment Academy instruction with master classes and recitals.
