Return To Campus Plan
Lipscomb University's comprehensive plan to return to campus.Learn More
The School of Music is the artistic hub of all things music at Lipscomb University. A cornerstone of the College of Entertainment & the Arts, the school represents the intersection of robust musical tradition and current innovation.
Lipscomb University’s School of Music educates students in a Christian liberal arts community for professional careers. The School is dedicated to preparing students to perform healthily, function with contextual competency, perform collaboratively, with an entrepreneurial mindset fit for the contemporary musical landscape. The School serves to advance musical culture on campus and in the Nashville community and to graduate self-reliant musicians.
Join students coming from around the world to find their place in Music City. You will experience the rich culture that is Nashville: concerts at the Ryman Auditorium and the Schemerhorn Symphony Center, big names headlining at Bridgestone Arena and Nashville’s top songwriters at the Bluebird Cafe, world-class opera and a stellar Broadway series.
You will join a community of creative learners who will guide and support you as you develop your own unique talents. Our welcoming, gifted faculty will mentor and challenge you with a forward-thinking musical education that is Nashville-centric and globally informed. We can prepare you to succeed as a concert pianist, session musician, choral director, recording artist, conductor, composer, teacher, producer — and we can help you find the place where you will be prepared to faithfully impact community, nation, and world for the cultural good of all.
Earn your music degree in Music City and get the guidance you desire from our professional, well-connected faculty. Your music degree can be centered on contemporary or classical music, education or professional expertise and more.View Undergraduate Programs
