  • Through her vision and example, Professor Glyde has empowered and inspired students, preparing them to take on transformative and challenging roles as artists. Students come from all over the world to study applied cello with her. Professor Glyde’s success is evidenced by her students’ many achievements at CU-Boulder and by the professional activities and prizes they have won in prestigious national and international competitions. One of her accomplishments has been forging a successful partnership between the music program and the Takacs Quartet, whose members are now fully integrated into the teaching mission of the College of Music. With the Takacs musicians, Professor Glyde developed a world-renowned educational program for string quartets.
