Teaching

At Princeton, Dylan has served as preceptor for courses on the history of the symphony and on nineteenth-century music. In the Fall of 2021, he will co-teach, with professor Simon Morrison, an advanced undergraduate seminar on the concepts of absolute music and musical abstraction.

In addition to precepting at Princeton, Dylan coordinates music theory instruction for the Temple University Music Preparatory Division. This involves writing curriculum, supervising graduate teaching assistants, and instructing middle and high school musicians. Recent alumni have placed into accelerated theory courses for college music majors.

While studying at Temple, Dylan taught aural skills in the honors theory sequence. In 2016, he received the B. Stimson Carrow Award for excellence in musicianship and pedagogy.

Before entering graduate school, Dylan was employed in the Pennsbury School District, which is consistently named one of NAMM’s Top One Hundred Communities for Music Education. While there, he conducted wind and jazz ensembles. Dylan holds a Pennsylvania teaching certification.
