Dean talks about Lynn’s “very special” Conservatory of Music

Published Sep. 09, 2009

Greg Stepanich, a reporter from the Palm Beach Arts Paper, recently interviewed Jon Robertson, dean of the Conservatory of Music at Lynn University. The two sat down for over an hour in Robertson’s office. “We had a great conversation,” said Robertson. And their candidness shows in the full-length interview online.

They discussed everything from Robertson’s past as a musical prodigy growing up in Jamaica, to his education at Julliard and his position as head of the music department at UCLA, one of the largest music schools in the country.

The two also discussed what Robertson has done to help Lynn’s conservatory gain recognition since he became dean five years ago. “Our size, quality of our faculty, and the level of our students, makes what we have very, very special,” said Robertson.
