He earned both a Master’s in Music History and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from Temple and received diplomas from the Accademia Chigiana and Conservatorio Antonio Vivaldi (Italy) and University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). As Director of Guitar Studies at Temple University from 1973 to 1993, Segal mentored over 200 graduate and undergraduate students in preparation for careers in the musical arts.
