Faculty, Staff and Applied Instructors

The Conservatory of Music, housed within the Division of the Visual and Performing Arts at Biola University's School of Fine Arts and Communication, is made up of talented and dedicated faculty, staff and applied lesson instructors, whose goal is to help you succeed in your academic and musical endeavors.

Our full-time faculty have graduated from some of the most prestigious university music programs and conservatories in the country, and some are also critically acclaimed musicians active in film, television and the recording industry. We also host applied lesson instructors and artists in residence who offer our students unique learning experiences through special courses, masterclasses and more.
