About Our Faculty

The faculty in Music and Music Education recognize the importance and uniqueness of the arts in our society and strive to offer flexible and individualized programs for the preparation of musician-educators. Faculty members are seasoned practitioners, who reflect a wide range of expertise in comprehensive musicianship, early childhood music,instrumental pedagogy, vocal and choral performance, assessment, improvisation, jazz, technology, and the full spectrum of public and private school music through graduate school and research practices.

Teachers College is the oldest and largest graduate school of education in the United States, and also perennially ranked among the nation's best. Its name notwithstanding, the College is committed to a vision of education writ large, encompassing our four core areas of expertise: health, education, leadership, and psychology.

Teachers College sees its leadership role in two complimentary arenas: One is a major player in policy-making to ensure that schools are reformed and restructured to welcome all students regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances. The other is in preparing educators, who not only serve students directly but coordinate the educational, psychological, behavioral, technological, and health initiatives to remove barriers to learning at all ages.

Wise Words

"The aim of education should be rather how to think, than what to think. Rather, to improve our minds so to enable us to think for ourselves."

 John Dewey
TC faculty member, 1904-1930
