Teachers fret as Peabody hires 25 new staff

America’s oldest conservatory of music is getting a reboot.

Dean Fred Bronstein has announced an unprecedented new intake of teachers.

He says: ‘I’m reasonably sure that there has never been another academic year with so many new faces, perhaps since Peabody’s beginnings. You’ll hear about these individuals as the year unfolds.’

So no new names for the moment, and no names of the teachers who are being replaced.

At least one Baltimore Symphony player has been dropped, we hear.

  • According to Marcell T. who posted on an older thread here, oboist Katherine Needleman is the Baltimore Symphony player who got dropped “for a harsh dispute with a student”

  • It is difficult finding high-level teachers.

    There are many high-level performers who will take students but fine performers do not always make fine teachers.

    • Fine performers’re not necessary good teacher but they attract more student and that what give school reputation.
