Dawn Pierce

Associate Professor, Music Performance


I'm a New York based actor-musician and pie-baking enthusiast originally from a small town in Eastern Connecticut. I grew up singing with my mom and playing the violin with my brother, eventually adding the piano, and French horn to my repertoire. 

​I was fortunate enough to attend The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts for high school where I decided to study musical theatre because it was the program where I got to take classes in as many interests as possible. 

In the spring of 2017 I graduated from Ithaca College with a BFA in Musical Theatre. I've been living in New York City ever since.

​Most recently, I was on the road with the Once National Tour playing Reza and covering Girl. It was the most creatively fulfilling experience I've ever had and a story I hope to be able to tell again.
