Associate Professor Emerita of Music Performance (Voice)
Kathleen Maurer joined the faculty at the Ball State University School of Music in 2003. As an Associate professor of Music in Voice Performance, she taught applied voice lessons and diction classes; she has also coached Baroque chamber ensembles and taught opera workshop classes. She performed regularly in the Faculty Artist Concert Series, the summer Chamber Music concert series, and in New Music Festival concerts. Prior to her position at Ball State, Dr. Maurer taught for five years at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

The book was released by Scarecrow Press in 2012. Recently she provided the English-language editing for a new two-volume publication titled Korean Art Songs: An Anthology and Guide for Performance and Study by Dr. Moon-Sook Park and Dr. You-Seong Kim.
