When nine U-M students began their journey to India with Prof. Stephen Rush in July, they thought they were going to learn about Indian classical music. But when they returned one month later, they also brought vast new knowledge about themselves and each other.
SMTD has partnered with the Gershwin family to bring the music of George and Ira Gershwin to students, scholars, performers and audiences across campus and worldwide.
The most important factor in your choice of a school must be the teachers with whom you will study - in your performance medium, in large and small ensembles and in the classroom. The faculty at the School of Music, Theatre & Dance is its single most important attraction. This extraordinary faculty includes performers currently active on the international stage; highly experienced former members of symphony orchestras, opera houses, and dance and theatre companies; prize-winning composers; and renowned scholars in theory and musicology. Although they are highly active professionally, members of the faculty at Michigan are profoundly and passionately committed to teaching and are in every sense a resident faculty.
