The music education track in the Master of Music is designed to provide teachers with advanced skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the public schools or in teaching college. Students may select one of four concentrations: instrumental, choral, elementary/general music or conducting. Students entering this degree should have an undergraduate degree in music.
The elementary/general music concentration within the Master of Music is entirely web based and may be completed via the internet, though some courses are available in a face-to-face format. This program is designed for individuals who wish to continue their study of elementary/general music methods and pedagogical theory. It is intended for practicing music specialists in the public-private schools and is offered as a 31-hour program with a thesis or a 36-hour program without a thesis.
