Our faculty includes teachers and artists from six different countries, all of whom bring a rare combination of professional expertise and pedagogical excellence to the studio and the classroom.

They hold degrees from the most prestigious and well-respected universities and conservatories in the world, and are the recipients of many competition prizes and music awards.

Students benefit from this team of teachers who remain closely connected with the professional music scene nationally and internationally. The majority of our adjunct faculty are full-time professional musicians; many are regulars with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
