Mark McCoy named dean of DePauw University music school

Educator, composer and conductor Mark McCoy has been appointed dean of the DePauw University School of Music.

McCoy is currently chairman of music at Shepherd University in West Virginia. Tuesday's announcement culminates a nearly year-long international search for the next leader of DePauw's School of Music. Founded in 1884, it's one of the nation's oldest private institutions for post-secondary music instruction and the longest-running in Indiana.

"We are extremely happy with the outcome of this search," DePauw President Brian W. Casey said. "The DePauw School of Music has always been central to the university's history of creative expression, and I know that Mark McCoy will build upon the School of Music's proud traditions in leading it to new levels of achievement."

"I am very excited about this opportunity, and the strengths and remarkable potential of DePauw's School of Music," McCoy said. "I am very much looking forward to working with the faculty and students."

McCoy joined the faculty of Shepherd University, a liberal arts college in the easternmost tip of West Virginia, in 1995, and was appointed chairman of the music program a year later. In his 16 years at Shepherd, the number of music majors and faculty members more than tripled, multimillion dollar renovations and additions have revitalized the music facilities, and a community-based "Friends" group has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. Besides duties as chairman, McCoy has been director of instrumental studies at Shepherd, touring nationally and internationally with instrumental groups.

McCoy previously taught theory and jazz at Texas Tech University. Earlier in his career he taught elementary, middle and high school bands and orchestras in West Virginia and Maryland.
