In 1924, McDonald also joined the faculty of the Philadelphia Musical Academy as a piano teacher, and remained at that until 1926, when he was hired by the University of Pennsylvania. At Pennsylvania, where he stayed for the next 20 years, McDonald held a number of academic posts, rising through the ranks to become senior professor and finally director.
