Cincinnati Conservatory of Music Names New Dean

Pianist and piano pedagogy expert Peter Jutras will step into the role


Pianist and pedagogue Peter Jutras has been named the next Dean of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati (UC). He comes to UC from the University of Georgia, where he was a professor of piano and piano pedagogy, and director of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music.

Jutras spent 18 years in the Hodgson School, where he served for a period as associate director for research and graduate studies before being named director of the institution. Over this time he built a reputation for making the school's curriculum more flexible and relevant, and he launched a number of new curricular offerings.

A frequent presenter at national and international conferences, Jutras has published many research articles in leading academic journals. He also spent eleven years as editor-in-chief of Clavier Companion Magazine, a leading national piano pedagogy publication.

"It is an honor and privilege to be chosen as the next UC College-Conservatory of Music dean," Jutras said. "I have a strong passion for advancing the cause of music and the arts on a global scale while supporting and empowering students, faculty and staff."

"I can’t wait to partner with members of the UC and Cincinnati communities to build on the college’s rich history to prepare students for successful careers that positively impact society."

"Peter Jutras has a strong record of inclusive leadership, visionary thinking, fiscal responsibility, community building and student-forward curricular development, all of which will serve our College-Conservatory of Music as it continues to grow its legacy as an internationally renowned performing and media arts institution," said Valerio Ferme, the Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs.

"His experience in the development of interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary partnerships with programs in the humanities and sciences will continue to fuel our innovative approach to education."
