Musical Partnership with Temple

Junior Unit students and our Middle School mixed choir have been working with "student conductors" – Colin Chen, Nicole Lusskin, and Sean Burke –  all training under Dr. Rollo Dilworth, Chair of Music Education and Music Therapy and Professor of Choral Music Education at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance.

As part of Professor Dilworth's choral methods class, undergraduate music education majors take part in a three-class field experience here at The Philadelphia School.  

TPS chorus director and music teacher Shannon Coulter says, "Rollo Dilworth is among the leading composers and choral teachers in the country, so sharing our classrooms with his students is a mutually enriching experience. I am delighted that TPS can offer these future music educators a chance to stretch their wings in the classroom."
