Dee Stewart

Performing and pedagogy are equally important in the career of M. Dee Stewart, professor emeritus and former brass department chair of the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. An avid supporter of ITA and one of the original members, Dee formed the Van Haney Philharmonic Prize and was a proud recipient of the Neil Humfeld award. After 18 years in the Philadelphia Orchestra and teacher at The Curtis Institute of Music, he joined the faculty of Indiana University. Dee’s students are carrying his joy of music and life throughout many great bands, orchestras and scholarly institutions. The expansive scope of his work is evidenced by books on Arnold Jacobs and Philip Farkas, creating College Audition Preparation (CAP), six solo CDs, recordings with Eugene Ormandy and Ricardo Muti in addition to six recordings with the six member Philadelphia Brass Ensemble. The Antiphonal Music of Gabrieli with the brass of the Chicago Symphony and the Cleveland Orchestra won two Grammys.
