Louise L. Anderson, Assistant Professor of Music, holds a PhD in Music Education from Temple University in Philadelphia. Dr. Anderson has more than 25 years of teaching experience K-12 encompassing all areas: general music classroom, instrumental and string instruction, and choral.
Dr. Anderson earned an M.A. in Humanities from Pennsylvania State University and has been involved in co-teaching experiences as well as interdisciplinary course development within the Humanities. She has a particular interest in art criticism and philosophy—with an emphasis on phenomenology.
In 2007, Dr. Anderson earned the distinction of becoming a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent/Young Adulthood Music Education with a focus on Choral Music Education. Her choral students have been selected for local, district, and state choral festivals.
Dr. Anderson has presented at international, national, state, and local conferences. She has developed and presented professional development for other educators and has maintained an interest in the semiotics of music. Her recent research projects and dissertation topic explore the phenomenon identified as a sense of community within music education—specifically as it may exist within the choral setting.
Having begun her teaching career on the Delmarva peninsula, Dr. Anderson is excited to return to the area to teach at Salisbury University.
