Dr. Robert Damm
Dr. Robert Damm has served with distinction as a creative musician and a caring teacher in the Department of Music at Mississippi State University for 14 years. As Director of Music Education Partnerships, he displays exemplary dedication to upholding and reflecting the MSU principle of promoting cultural diversity and understanding through music.
He teaches a class called African American Music through which he explores the roots, culture, and traditions of African American Music. It is clear that Robert is passionate about learning and teaching the music and cultures from many countries. In fact, Robert is so well thought of that he teaches a course in fine arts for our elementary teachers in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and Special Education. Within this course, he models a multicultural approach to integrating music with the study of people, places, and cultures. He also creates a learning environment which contributes to the self esteem of all the students.
Robert never loses sight of his important mission of music education or his concern for making the world a place without prejudice and one of peace and compassion. He consistently brings his expertise, enthusiasm, and knowledge to students of all ages and backgrounds.
In short, Robert embodies the qualities that reflect Mississippi State University's spirit of commitment to diversity.
