Academy of Music teachers number approximately 50; most of them hold advanced degrees, certificates or diplomas in music education or pedagogy. Two-thirds of the Academy's teachers hold masters or doctoral degrees; well over half have taught in the Academy for more than 10 years. In addition to teaching, many maintain active performance careers. Lawrence University Conservatory of Music faculty members teach, by audition only, a number of highly motivated and accomplished students. Approximately 20 Conservatory of Music student teachers offer private lessons. They are teachers in training under the supervision of the Academy.
