Welcome to the Mary Morgan Moore Department of Music

Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music, the Mary Morgan Moore Department of Music at Lamar University offers five undergraduate degrees and two graduate degrees, in addition to an exciting curriculum designed to inspire you every day. The department fully immerses its students in the cultural study of music, its composition, performance techniques, education, history, and more. Here, you can sing in a chorus, go to a live performance, compose an original piece, enjoy music of various genres and play your instruments, all while refining your natural gifts and talents.

Surrounded by artistic institutions all throughout our area, we strongly encourage our students to participate in Southeast Texas’ cultural life. Some of these facilities include the Lamar Civic Orchestra, Symphony of Southeast Texas, Beaumont Interfaith Choral Society, Beaumont Community Players, Beaumont Ballet Theatre and the Beaumont Civic Ballet.
