Don Bowyer

Professor and Chair of the Music Department Don Bowyer left UAH in 2012 to become Dean of the College of Fine Arts at Arkansas State University. His sense of adventure (he has performed as a trombonist in nearly 50 countries and on 11 cruise ships) then led him to Sunway University in Malaysia where he was Professor and Dean of the School of Arts. During pandemic lockdowns in Malaysia he presented nightly concerts from the rooftop of his condo, streaming the concerts to Facebook and YouTube.

Don recently returned to Huntsville where he is continuing his wide-ranging activities that include composing and performing, consulting on accreditation and curricular development, and maintaining Dolphin Don’s Music School – a set of educational computer games for children.

Don and his wife are currently exploring the possibility of continuing their retirement in Costa Rica.
