Our instructors are performers, composers, conductors, producers, recording engineers and academics. They are leaders in the music industry, working in jazz clubs and theatre pits, at festivals and private parties, on local, national and international stages. As a MacEwan music student, you learn from professionals whose passion for music will shape your classroom experience.


Composition as research

Our faculty perform around the world. In May, Ray Baril, assistant professor, took his place as conductor at a recording studio in Prague. He was accompanied by his colleague, Allan Gilliland, whose Dreaming of the Masters series was being performed by the Prague philharmonic orchestra.
