S. Alex Ruthmann Joins Music Education Faculty

The Music Education Program in NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions is proud to announce the addition of S. Alex Ruthmann to the full-time faculty. Dr. Ruthmann joins us in the fall as Associate Professor of Music Education and Music Technology. He is a researcher, educator, and musician whose research and practice explores new media musicianship, creative computing, the creative processes of young musical creators, and the development of music and media technologies for use in school- and community-based youth programs.

Alex said: "Now is an exciting time to be involved in music education and music technology. Everywhere people experience music is an opportunity to work as a music educator – in schools, at home, in our communities, online and across all of the hybrid spaces in between. NYU is truly a unique place where leading faculty, students, and industry partners are working on reinventing the research and practice of music learning, teaching and engagement. I am excited to join such a dynamic educational environment."

He joins the Music Education program's extraordinary faculty of respected researchers, renowned performing artists and composers, and experienced teachers and administrators.
