Faculty and Program Support
Our faculty members are dedicated and gifted teachers who are talented and successful musicians in their own right. They set the pace for our students as performers and as advocates for the arts.
Gifts to a faculty member's studio fund at the Peabody Conservatory benefit the instructor's teaching and students. Contributions to a faculty studio fund will be used to offset the cost of student tuition and living expenses, provide funds to attend competitions, auditions and festivals, as well as to purchase music or instruments. These donor-directed funds are dispersed at the discretion of the faculty member to enhance their teaching and/or support their students.
Leadership gifts to endow chair positions help us to attract and retain outstanding faculty - who draw talented students to their studios - and ensure that Peabody students continue to receive the best in music pedagogy.
To discuss supporting a faculty studio fund or endowing a faculty chair at Peabody, contact the development office by email or call 667-208-6550.
