The faculty in the IWU Music division have performed all over the nation and the world while maintaining "first things first" (Matt. 6:33). They all have advanced degrees in performance in addition to a zeal for teaching and mentoring the next generation of classical performers to reflect the glory of the Creator of music from every stage or venue to which he calls them.
