Music Education Concentration



The Music Education Program at the LSU School of Music is among the most highly regarded in the nation. Situated in a long tradition of excellence, the program combines an outstanding faculty of music education specialists with the artistry of performing musicians and conductors, the scholarship of music theorists and historians, a strong liberal arts component, and a consistently high-quality body of undergraduate and graduate students.

The program in music education is known for its comprehensive, field-based curriculum, an outstanding record of accomplishment by its graduates, and the research expertise of its faculty—expertise that satisfies the practical needs of pre-service and in-service teachers while leading the music teaching “culture” forward. We pride ourselves in the synergistic relationship of research and practice, one that provides a solid foundation for the year to year, day to day, and moment to moment decision-making inherent in music teaching.
