Aug. 23: New instructors join department of music

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

FREDERICK, Md.—Two new instructors have joined the Hood College Department of Music and will begin teaching private lessons to Hood students and members of the community beginning in late August and September.

Kuei-I Wu, DMA, will be teaching piano, and Antony Zwerdling, DMA, will be teaching voice.

Wu holds degrees from the National Taiwan Academy of Arts, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland, College Park. She has performed widely as a soloist and in ensembles, and she has won numerous awards for her performing artistry. As a teacher, she has taught and coached pianists of every age.

Zwerdling has earned degrees from Northwestern University, Boston University, the Boston Conservatory and the Shenandoah Conservatory. He is a baritone and has performed to much acclaim in opera, oratorio and numerous other venues. In his vocal teaching and coaching, he has worked with children, high school students, and college-age and older adults.

Wu and Zwerdling join 16 other music instructors in the department, all of whom have advanced degrees in music and have wide experience as performers and teachers. For more information about Hood’s music program or about studying with one of its teachers, contact Wayne Wold at 301-696-3782 or
