Share your love of music

Prepare to mentor and train young musicians while continuing to develop your own skills as a musician.

From your very first year, you’ll get hands-on experience teaching one-on-one or in small groups in preK-12 classrooms.

As state requirements for teachers intensify, we’re committed to preparing you for certification in four years, including your student teaching semester.

Our rigorous curriculum will broaden your musical comfort zone and help you grow as a musician, performer and creative thinker. Mentoring from professors who are experienced educators and active performers will build your confidence.

Performance opportunities and more

Take advantage of opportunities to perform in our many choral, instrumental and chamber music ensembles. You won’t compete with graduate students in our undergraduate-only program.

Join our very active chapter of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) in which you’ll bond and connect with fellow music education majors and network with music educators across the state.

Get even more hands-on experience in our community music program, which has its own dedicated teaching lab space right here on campus.

Virtually guaranteed job placement

Nearly 100 percent of music education graduates seeking full-time employment are employed or entering graduate school within six months of graduation.

Most become successful teachers at all levels all around the country, but some continue their music studies in graduate school.

MUSIC PREPARATORY PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

The hallmark of the program is the rich collaboration among music faculty, music students, and the children and adults who take lessons and classes.
