Welcome new OCC music faculty!

​We're excited to welcome two new faculty members to our department: Dr. Mathew Ward, who will lead the OCC Symphony, and Carter Willmann, who will teach applied clarinet.

Dr. Ward earned his doctorate in conducting at Louisiana State University, and has a deep passion for community music-making. His own musical journey included studies at community colleges in Southern California, and he'll be an inspired advocate for our student and community instrumentalists.

Mr. Willmann earned his master's degree at CSU-Fullerton, and is both a highly respected performer and an oustanding teacher of clarinet, saxophone, and flute.

We couldn't be happier to have these gentlemen joining us! If you'd like to take lessons or play in the OCC Symphony, contact Eliza Rubenstein at to learn more!
