The University of Maryland School of Music is proud to be located next to the nation’s capital and to make its home within the remarkable Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Yet, despite our enviable location and our beautiful building, we are most proud of our exceptional faculty. Our teaching artists, scholars, and educators model the excellence and creativity that we seek to instill in each of our students. Working in individual studios, small seminar rooms, and large lecture halls, our faculty bring a wealth of international experience to the classroom, and they are dedicated to mentoring students in the craft and scholarship of music.

Approximately 100 faculty

  • 50% full-time, 50% adjunct
