M. Dee Stewart is a professor of trombone and euphonium at the Indiana University School of Music. Mr. Stewart joined the faculty in 1980 after an 18-year tenure with the Philadelphia Orchestra. In addition to countless recordings, concerts, tours, and telecasts with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy and Ricardo Muti, Mr. Stewart made five recordings with the Grammy Award-winning Philadelphia Brass Ensemble. Other recordings include Stewart Sounds: The CD and a Christmas recording, Trombones Under the Tree. Extensive teaching in the Philadelphia area included ten years on the faculty of the Curtis Institute of Music and led to the development of many outstanding trombonists.

Two degrees in music education from Ball State University and Northwestern University, and the tutelage of Arnold Jacobs, give Mr. Stewart a unique musical and pedagogical perspective. In demand as a recitalist, clinician, and orchestral musician nationwide, he plays the alto, tenor and bass trombones, euphonium, and bass trumpet. He has performed on special occasions with the Summit Brass and with the orchestras of  San Francisco, Honolulu, Minnesota, Phoenix, San Antonio, St. Louis, Chicago, Indianapolis, and New York. He is the author of two books, Arnold Jacobs: Legacy of a Master and Philip Farkas: Legacy of a Master, as well as articles appearing in the International Trombone Association Journal, Euphonia and T.U.B.A. Organizer of the 2nd International Brass Conference, he is also the creator of the Stewart Stand for euphonium and tuba. At the International Trombone Festival in Boulder, Colorado, Mr. Stewart was awarded the 1998 Neill Humfeld Award for Excellence in Teaching.
