Dear School of Music Community,
It is wonderful to welcome everyone back to a new academic year at Shepherd! The campus is abuzz with the sounds of students, faculty, and staff returning to campus refreshed from summer.
This year, the SoM welcomes four new faculty members!
- Erica Rumbley – music history and collaborative piano
- Stefan Swanson – music theory, composition, and technology
- Steve Grives – visiting director of choral activities
- Morgan Brower – applied voice instructor
Each of these accomplished musicians brings many years of knowledge and experience. Each of them is eager to share this with our students and community! Please take a moment to learn more about each in their faculty bios.
We are very excited for a wonderful year of concerts and recitals. From the Ram Band performances to the Salon Series to our marvelous student ensembles, there is something for everyone! Please take some time to check out the concerts and mark your calendars! If you haven’t already, please join our mailing list.
At the heart of the School of Music is our students. In the School of Music, we are committed to empowering students to grow creatively, artistically, and professionally. In addition to being versatile, innovative musicians, SoM students are critical thinkers and leaders.
Thank you for being part of our community! We look forward to seeing you at the next concert!
