Featured Music Management Faculty

Martha Placeres, DMA
- Music Department Chair

As a passionate music educator, my main goal has always been student success. In the orchestral program, I strive to give my students the opportunity to perform standard symphonic and string orchestra literature and contemporary music in a positive and inclusive environment. I work diligently to create a sense of “belonging” so that students feel that they are part of a family and as such, they play an equal role in performing music together.
