Jason Reese, Music Education Major
“Faculty helped me grow into my own musical identity. My professors challenge me to go out of my comfort zone, and that helps me grow as a musician. LIU Post gave me the opportunity to perform in other countries, which some people never have the chance to do.”
The LIU Post Department of Music provides a dynamic, intensive and supportive environment that will nurture your talent as a performer, music educator or scholar. Our conservatory-style program, within a liberal arts university, brings you 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 70 nationally and internationally recognized performers, conductors, composers, researchers and music educators.
The Department of Music offers a variety of public performance opportunities to showcase your 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.
Performance majors enjoy vibrant careers as composers, performers in Broadway shows, members of major orchestras and opera companies, and as music scholars and researchers. More than 95% of our music education majors obtain teaching positions following graduation.
