Timothy D. Saeed, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Music And Performing Arts
Timothy holds degrees in the areas of Music Theory and Piano Performance.
Prior to joining the faculty at LSC, Timothy has instructed undergraduate music theory and musicianship courses at Johnson State College, Louisiana State University, University of New Mexico, and Boston University. Timothy’s research interests include theories of expressive performance and analysis, form in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century music, and Schenkerian analysis. In addition to his academic interests and research, Timothy has been a performing pianist and accompanist for the past seventeen years. He has served as a soloist and an accompanist in Stockton, CA; San Francisco, CA; Berkeley, CA; Albuquerque, NM; Baton Rouge, LA; and Johnson, VT. He has also served as the staff pianist at churches in Baton Rouge, LA and Albuquerque, NM.
A big admirer of Western European Music, Timothy encourages students to explore traditions, knowledge, and experience brought forth by various composers. He is confident that profound knowledge of music fundamentals is one of the stages of students’ journey toward the development of their own voice in music. Timothy teaches his students to learn from their predecessors and keep pushing the limits of what is available at the present moment. His credo is to help students see and experience music as an on-going live performance, structured, organized and yet free and expanding.
