Teaching ArtistsThe New York Philharmonic Teaching Artist Faculty is composed of professional performers and educators who bring a depth of passion, education, and experience to their teaching artistry. Their credentials include doctorates in music and education, success as published composers and authors, and acclaim as active, internationally-renowned performers.

Committed to producing innovative and transformative educational experiences — whether the audience is a classroom of third graders, a high school orchestra, or an auditorium of families — the Philharmonic provides over 45 hours of professional development for our faculty each year and requires potential teaching artists to go through an extensive audition process that includes an apprenticeship year. The Education Department selects musicians who show the promise to become true leaders in the field and uphold the Philharmonic’s commitment to excellence in creativity and engagement.

New York Philharmonic Teaching Artist positions are funded by The Susan W. Rose Fund for Teaching Artists.
