The curricula for our Bachelor of Science in Music Education degree offers two options – Vocal/General Music K-12 and Instrumental/General Music K-12. We strive to prepare you for the educational workplace of the future. Here are a few examples of the program's current evolution:

  • More practical skills in piano studies that you will use everyday in the classroom and in rehearsals, such as playing accompaniments and conducting from the keyboard.
  • Step-by-step instruction in technology, ranging from SmartBoard apps for K-4 teachers to microphone placement and use for jazz and pop groups at the senior high level.
  • Pop and commercial music study in our theory sequence, so that you will be able to work with students who want to know more about contemporary music.
