About Timothy Blair

 

Timothy Blair - Professional Summary:     For more than 15 years, Dr. Timothy V. Blair has served as Dean of West Chester University’s School of Music. He started at the school as an Assistant Professor of Keyboard Music, was promoted to the position of Coordinator of Graduate Studies for Music after a few years, and then became the interim Dean in 1997. Dr. Blair received the permanent Dean title in 1999, and he remains a Professor of Piano for the school at the behest of the first female President of the school, Madeleine Wing Adler.

Dr. Blair, who calls himself “fortunate and proud to have had the opportunity to be part of this dynamic university,” enjoys helping students improve their skills and increase their passion for music. His capacity for teaching and mentoring students has allowed several students to achieve success in the classical music field. A signal of his commitment to nothing but the best for his students, Dr. Blair decided to work to secure funding for new piano equipment. The West Chester University School of Music students had been practicing on 40-year-old pianos when Dr. Timothy Blair became Dean, and he resolved to purchase as many pianos as possible with the input of the piano faculty. These teachers unanimously decided they wanted Steinway pianos, which are known as some of the finest available for sale. Dr. Blair helped the school purchase 111 Steinway pianos, making WCU the first public university in Pennsylvania to receive the All-Steinway School designation.

Dr. Blair continues to play recitals at concert halls such as Steinway Hall in New York and the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, England.
