Welcome from the Chair

Thank you for your interest in the Music Department at Loyola Marymount University! Located within one of the top liberal arts universities in the country, LMU Music offers a comprehensive undergraduate program of study that prepares students to achieve success as artists and leaders ready to make profound contributions in the field of music.  

Our students receive close mentorship and training during their time at LMU and have incredible opportunities to perform in ensembles and as soloists, study with world-renowned faculty, access state-of-the-art facilities, become part of a close-knit music community, and serve marginalized populations through vital arts programming that brings our department and the community together.

Our students and faculty inspire and serve the university and surrounding communities through their commitment to an inclusive and equitable approach to artistic excellence.  

I am happy to answer any questions you may have about our program, our university culture, life as a music major or to arrange a practice lesson with our faculty. I encourage you to explore our website and visit our beautiful campus when possible.
