Our Faculty

Teachers, performers, artists, scientists, professionals, mentors, and scholars—our faculty make MMC great.

Our professors guide students in the studio, mentor them in research, help them land amazing internships, and prepare them for graduate study and careers. They are as accomplished in their own careers as they are in the classroom, performing, presenting, and publishing their own work regularly.
