Judy Glass is the organ professor at Southern Adventist University.
She was an organ student of Anton Heiller for three years at the Vienna Academy of Music and has been a participant in the International Organ course in Haarlem, Holland, and the North German Organ Academy. During Professor Glass' tenure at Southern, five mechanical action organs have been built and installed by John Brombaugh.  The organ in the campus church is the largest American-made tracker instrument in North America. 

A native Texan, Professor Glass received her B.Mus. and M.Mus. degrees from the University of Texas in Austin and was a postgraduate student at Texas Tech University. She is a member of Mu Phi Epsilon and was nominated to Pi Kappa Lambda. In 1986, Professor Glass was recognized as one of the outstanding teachers at Southern Adventist University, and was awarded the Distinguished Service Medallion in 1988. Many of her former students have received advanced degrees and are serving as organists and teachers throughout the United States. As an organist, she has given many concerts across the United States and in many famous European cathedrals. She currently serves as organist for both the Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists and the First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga.

Professor Glass has taught seminars in various locations on Organ Historical Performance Practice.
