Unique Features of LMU
Our Bachelor of Arts degree offers an innovative and balanced curriculum specializing in music performance, contemporary practices, musicianship, and historical perspectives. Students can choose to major or minor in music; for majors, private lessons are covered by university tuition and professional accompanists are provided for lessons, rehearsals, and public performances.
Located in Los Angeles, one of the most culturally and musically vibrant cities in the country and a music industry hub, LMU offers students access to a wide variety of musical opportunities and events both on and off campus.
LMU graduates are trained for careers as musicologists, composers, performers, conductors, arts administrators, and music educators, as well as in fields outside of music. Many go on to graduate school in music as well as other areas of interest.
