Welcome to the University of California Santa Barbara Department of Music! The fall of 2022 marks my fifteenth year at UCSB as a Professor of Voice, and I am honored to serve as the Department's Chair. Our Department's faculty is made up of world-renowned scholars, researchers, teachers, and performers. Here at UCSB our students are offered a wide variety of opportunities to study, perform, teach and create in an environment filled with world-class instruction. Our recent graduates are now engaged in a variety of music industry positions including College/University academic positions, music industry production, music composers, solo, chamber music, and orchestral performers as well as opera and concert vocal soloists, just to mention a few. I encourage you to look through our faculty biographies as well as visit our beautiful campus on the Pacific Ocean so you can better understand what UCSB and our Department have to offer aspiring musicians and scholars.
