Christian Bernhard selected to present Hagan lecture

Dr. Christian Bernhard

Dr. Christian Bernhard, recipient of the 2014 William T. and Charlotte N. Hagan Young Scholar/Artist Award at Fredonia, will present the Hagan lecture, “Stress and Burnout Among University Students: Research and Recommendations for Health and Happiness,” on Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 4 p.m. at Rosch Recital Hall.


The use of singing and improvisation in instrumental music education, as well as the alleviation of stress and burnout among music teachers, are the focus of Dr. Bernhard’s research interests.

A former music teacher in public schools in Raleigh, N.C., Bernhard has degrees in Music Performance and Education from The Peabody Conservatory of Music, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

A member of the School of Music faculty since 2003, Bernhard teaches undergraduate courses in instrumental music methods and conducting as well as graduate courses in music education theory, philosophy, psychology, assessment and curriculum.

The Hagan Young Scholar/Artist Award recognizes an individual who has made outstanding recent achievements in research or creativity. It is named in honor of the late SUNY Distinguished Professor of History Emeritus William T. Hagan, an eminent scholar who specialized in the history of the American Indian and was a chair and acting vice president for Academic Affairs at Fredonia.
