Empower students as learners

Possibly the only thing greater than unlocking your own creativity through music, is helping someone else unlock theirs. That’s precisely what you’ll do with a focus in music education: help your students learn to express their unique individuality, while providing them with a strong sense of how the shared experience of music brings us all together.

Program Overview

As a music education student, you’ll study music theory, composition, conducting, music history, and forms of the medieval, baroque, pre-classical, romantic, and 20th century periods from around the globe. With such a thorough background, you’ll gain the skills and to share this knowledge with your own students. You can choose which area of music education to specialize in: Choral or Instrumental.

Choral Music Education

Use your voice to inspire in more than one way by becoming a teacher for K-12 chorus. The K-12 Choral Education curriculum will take you through different levels of music theory and music history, conducting, voice teaching techniques, along with participating in an ensemble of your choice each semester.

Instrumental Music Education

Learn the ins and outs of all the instruments in an ensemble by becoming a teacher for K-12 band or orchestra. The K-12 Choral Education curriculum teaches many levels of music theory and music history, conducting, and techniques for teaching brass, woodwinds, percussion, and strings. In addition to learning in the classroom, stay active in your instrumental skills by participating in an ensemble of your choice each semester.
