Chair, Department of Bands
Join a close-knit, collaborative student-faculty community, where you will hone your conducting skills and learn all facets of the job of a well-rounded conductor and educator.
Your degree program will include experience with each of the Jacobs School of Music bands: Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, and All-Campus Band.
In addition to generous podium time with major ensembles, you’ll work in the exciting atmosphere and large crowds of the B1G athletic conference with a wide range of athletic bands, from the 300-strong IU Marching Hundred to the 100-member Big Red Basketball Band and Women’s Basketball Band to the smaller, top-notch, auditioned Crabb Soccer Band.
You’ll also benefit from collegiate teaching experience with undergraduate students, expert feedback from wind conducting faculty, and a 100% job placement rate.
