Buies Creek, N.C.—Dr. Ran Whitley, chair of the Division of Fine Arts and professor of music at Campbell University, received the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in a ceremony held Sunday, May 2, in the Pope Convocation Center.

A resident of Angier, N.C., Whitley joined the Campbell faculty in 1998 and holds the Alma Dark Howard Chair of Music.

“I refer to Ran as the Swiss Army Knife of the musical world,” said Dr. Mark Hammond, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “He can and does play anything. Whatever Ran strums, shakes, picks, blows, strikes, or pounds, makes music.”

Whitley graduated form Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. He went on to earn a Master of Divinity in Theological Studies from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Philosophy in Music Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Whitley is the coordinator of the music education program at Campbell.

“He has greatly strengthened Campbell’s music education program and continues to make it an attractive course of study for our students,” said Hammond. “Ran loves to teach. He has become an inspirational and masterful teacher of music.”

My daughter is interested in learning how to play violin.  Do you have a program there and have students who give lessons?  If not do you know someone else who could give lessons?
