Bachelor of Music Education

Teach the world to sing or play

Inspiring others is a gift. And if you’re lucky enough to have it, the bachelor of music education degree is a perfect fit. The College of Music and Fine Arts in collaboration with Our Lady of Holy Cross College offers coursework leading to post-baccalaureate certification in Louisiana. Choose teacher certification in either vocal or instrumental music – you can even add a concentration in jazz studies if you’d like to really benefit from what New Orleans has to offer. Prepare for your teaching career by teaching in the community at both public and private schools and get a taste of how it feels to ignite young minds.

At Loyola, you’ll have the unique opportunity to learn from a highly distinguished faculty that includes noted educators, world-renowned performers, authors and more. Here’s just a sampling of the caliber: a Rocky Mountain Concerto Competition winner, a past performer with the New York Philharmonic under Leonard Bernstein, a recipient of the International Association of Jazz Educators’ Lifetime Achievement Award, published authors, and a member of the New Orleans Public Schools Music Education Committee and the Music Education Committee of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra.
