Department of Music
The Department of Music at Louisiana Tech is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and offers a full range of courses and performance opportunities for students wishing to continue their music education at the college level. Music majors select one of four possible concentrations: Performance, Music Education (Vocal or Instrumental), Composition, or Liberal Arts. Our mission is four-fold:
- To lay the foundation for personal growth in music performance, pedagogy, and education.
- To foster the development of knowledge, skills, achievement, and integrity in the field of music.
- To enrich the cultural life of the campus and surrounding communities.
- To maintain the highest quality of academic, performance, and professional standards for students and faculty
We welcome students from all majors to audition and participate in our performing ensembles. Visit the Audition Requirements page and the Prospective Students page to learn more about scheduling an audition.
