Department of Music

The Department of Music provides a dynamic, intensive and supportive environment that nurtures students' talents as performers, music educators or scholars. Our conservatory-style program, within a liberal arts university, brings a diverse array of performance and academic opportunities. We offer a full curriculum of bachelor's and master's degree programs taught by more than 40 nationally and internationally recognized performers, conductors, composers, researchers and music educators.

Performance majors enjoy vibrant careers as composers, performers in Broadway shows, members of major orchestras and opera companies, and as music scholars and researchers.

The Department of Music offers a variety of public performance opportunities to showcase students' skills and talents, including solo student recitals, workshops, master classes and concerts both on campus and at major concert halls in New York City and abroad. Membership in a major performing organization (Chorus, Orchestra, and Wind Symphony) is required for all undergraduate Music majors and graduate students in the M.A. (Performance) concentration throughout their tenure at LIU Post. In addition, all instrumental performance and instrumental music education majors are required to sing in the chorus for one year. All music majors are also required to attend at least three Department of Music concerts/recitals per semester.

You can find out more about the LIU Post Department of Music in the LIU Post Undergraduate Bulletin and Graduate Bulletin.
