“I chose Sunderman for the opportunity to double major and for the supportive community. Sunderman offers numerous opportunities to perform and connect with professors because of the undergraduate-only environment. I have grown and developed skills personally and professionally with the help of professors and the supportive community at Sunderman. The opportunity to work so closely with my professors has helped me discover new passions and career paths.”

“Our conservatory offers a unique opportunity for creativity and excellence in music within a thriving, broad intellectual environment. For me, to contribute to the world as a musician, one must develop themselves and be well-rounded in all areas of thought. We encourage and empower students to develop as scholars and musicians, allowing them to find their path to contribute to the world. We also offer extensive one-on-one instruction and support that most conservatories cannot provide–my composition students routinely have their works performed by guest ensembles, faculty groups, and peers.”
– Dr. Avner Dorman – Associate Professor of Music Theory and Composition
