The Loyola University Jazz Studies program features studies in improvisation, composition, arranging, history, theory, and music industry. Students have the opportunity to perform in many award-winning jazz ensembles and combos, coached by our internationally renowned faculty. Loyola’s jazz faculty are selected from the finest musicians New Orleans has to offer, which means they are the best in the world. In addition, our program is in New Orleans, with its active and welcoming music scene; New Orleans forms our “second classroom” for jazz studies. Many Loyola students enhance their skills by “gigging” with New Orleans masters and their own peers, becoming part of the musical fabric of the city at historic music venues. We are proud to have one of the oldest jazz programs in the south, with many famous alumni, including Ellis Marsalis, Victor Goines, and Rick Margitza.
