With the guidance of a faculty adviser, candidates seeking a Master of Music in music education through the Meadows School of the Arts may use elective choices to build a concentration (requiring at least six credits) in one of four areas: choral conducting, instrumental conducting, general music or piano pedagogy. In certain cases, and subject to departmental approval, up to six credit hours of the Master of Music in music education may be satisfied through involvement in the Music Educators Workshops.
Applicants traditionally enter the program with a background in teacher preparation. However, other candidates may be accepted, including those with undergraduate music degrees in performance, piano pedagogy or sacred music. The wide variety of elective choices allows the construction of individualized degree plans to fill in gaps in previous training.
