The Music Education program is an engaged, active, committed group of students who combine their love for music as a performing art with a commitment to providing young people avenues to explore, thrive, grow and develop to the full extent of their desires and capabilities in classroom settings.
The Music Education program combines advanced musical training and performance experiences with studies about music, children, communities and schools. In addition, you will participate in a year-long, in-school mentored experience with a public school teacher in a classroom setting.
