Joseph Dubiel came to Columbia in 1990, having previously taught at Princeton University and the University of Pittsburgh. Recipient of the SMT Young Scholar Award (1992), a Guggenheim for composition, and other grants, he has served as co-editor of Perspectives of New Music (1995 to 1999), and co-founder of the SMT Music and Philosophy Study Group. He composes vocal and chamber music, and seeks to consider theory descriptive and interpretive, at least as much as explanatory.
Prof. Dubiel Chaired the Department from 2005-2008.
