Greg Sandow (USA)

Classical Music Consultant & Commentator

Greg Sandow is a writer, teacher, and consultant, who works on projects involving the future of classical music.

He’s a member of the Graduate Studies faculty at Juilliard, writes an influential blog about classical music’s future and has worked on projects with major American orchestras. As a consultant he’s had clients ranging from individual artists to the DePauw University School of Music, where he worked intensively with students, faculty, and the dean, helping the school put in place its radical new curriculum. In Australia, he’s worked with Sally Whitwell and Ensemble Offspring.

He’s much in demand as a speaker, both in the US and internationally. He visited Australia in 2010, and gave a keynote talk at a classical music summit in Sydney.

For many years he was a widely known critic, writing about both classical and pop music. Prior to this he was a composer and he will re-emerge as one in April, with a concert of his music at a large performing arts center just outside Washington, DC, where he currently lives.
