Come enjoy our classical concerts at Holy Names University!

The music department at Holy Names gave me the tools I needed to begin a successful career. Not only did I receive valuable pedagogical training through the classroom setting, I was encouraged to develop as a performer through the many performance opportunities available. "

Master of Music in Piano Pedagogy

Two majors in piano pedagogy are offered for those interested in teaching individual or class lessons. One program follows a traditional approach; the other places an emphasis on the Suzuki method of music education. Both programs focus on advanced training in methods and materials as well as performance skills. Observation and teaching opportunities are available in the Holy Names University Preparatory Music Department.
