Ryan Middagh is the Director of Jazz Studies at the Blair School. An accomplished jazz composer and arranger, Middagh has received numerous commissions for high schools, colleges and professional musicians and ensembles throughout the country, and currently arranges music for Grammy-winning saxophonist Jeff Coffin. His music has been featured at the International Jazz Composers Symposium, been recorded by professional and collegiate ensembles, and several of his works are published by UNC Jazz Press.

As a saxophonist, Middagh is endorsed by Conn-Selmer as a Yanagisawa Artist. Notable performances include performing with the Cab Calloway Orchestra (2013), Nashville Jazz Orchestra (2009-11), and the Colorado Jazz Orchestra (2014). He was also a featured artist at the 2013 North American Saxophone Alliance regional conference. Leading his own jazz octet, Middagh has released two albums, Colorado Brew: Featuring Jeff Coffin and Tom Giampietro and To Somewhere and Back Again (both albums currently available on iTunes).

Prior to his appointment at Vanderbilt, Middagh served on the faculty at Middle Tennessee State University, where his primary responsibilities were directing the Commercial Music Ensemble and teaching Introduction to Music. During his tenure at MTSU he also taught applied improvisation, jazz theory and applied saxophone.

Middagh received his Doctor of Arts degree in Jazz Studies with a secondary emphasis in Music Composition at the University of Northern Colorado, where he was the doctoral fellow in music technology. During his time at the University of Northern Colorado, he earned three Downbeat awards as a member of UNC Jazz Lab Band One and sang in the Grammy-nominated Northern Colorado Voices. In 2014 the University of Northern Colorado named him “Graduate Student of the Year."

Middagh also earned a Master of Arts degree from Middle Tennessee State University and a Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Northern Iowa.
