The Conservatory is thrilled to announce that Dr. Thomas Rosenkranz will join our keyboard faculty, Fall 2018! Dr. Rosenkranz has been appointed Associate Professor of Piano and Chair of the Keyboard Studies Division. He currently serves as Associate Professor of Piano and Coordinator of Keyboard Area Studies at Bowling Green State University.

Interim Dean Diane Petrella notes, "Professor Rosenkranz has performed and taught all over the world, creating particularly strong ties to China that have allowed him to build recruiting connections with pianists from that region. His commitment to the performance and teaching of new music is a tremendous asset to the Conservatory, as well. I am confident that his leadership and reputation will lead the keyboard studies division to tremendous success in the coming years."
