National Guild board member John William Martin has been named assistant dean of Preparatory and Community Engagement at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM).

A Guild member since 1992, CCM is a nationally ranked institution for the performing and media arts. In his new role, Martin will help strengthen CCM’s educational and community engagement programming. Martin comes to CCM after finishing his tenure as executive director of the Brookline Music School, a Guild member based in Brookline Massachusetts that provides preparatory-style, community arts education.

In addition to Brookline, he has built a long career as a music administrator dating back to the 1980s: director of admissions and founding director of the Community Music School at Michigan State University; coordinator of music services, director of the Celebrity Artists Series and instructor in the Music Administration program at the University of Alabama; director of the Wausau Conservatory of Music in Wisconsin; and arts coordinator for the Jefferson County School system in Florida.

Martin is currently a board member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education and has served as chairperson of the Guild’s Central Great Lakes Chapter, as well a member of the Council of School Directors (now known as the Members Council) and the membership committee. He has served as a consultant to numerous community and university arts programs throughout the country and has been a participant in the National Guild’s Management Assessment Training Program.
