Ian Bryan Hoffman has been appointed to the faculty of the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University

Ian Bryan Hoffman was appointed a principal instructor in audio sciences for the acoustical studies concentration, and he will be teaching Architectural Acoustics, Psychoacoustics, Physical Acoustics, Noise Control, and Acoustical Modeling courses. He has committed his career to examining and understanding the curious interactions of sound and space, specifically as they affect the human experience. He has been principally engaged in the design of performance and cultural arts spaces of varying scales and programs on five continents.

>Scott Metcalfe, the director of Peabody’s recording arts and sciences program, says: “The appointment of Ian Hoffman to our faculty is a big step in the Recording Arts and Sciences Department’s refocusing of the acoustical studies MA concentration, and it fits well with Dean Bronstein’s vision to develop the interdisciplinary space. Mr. Hoffman’s training as an acoustical engineer, architect, and pianist — and an impressive resume of consulting work in architecture and acoustics — make him an ideal fit for Peabody.”
