The Undergraduate Program in Music Education
The Music Education Program at The University of Arizona is committed to helping you develop into the finest musician/teacher possible. The curriculum is designed to allow you to achieve your highest musical potential while giving you the leadership skills necessary to guide the musicians of tomorrow. Upon graduation, you will be certified to teach all aspects of music in any grade from kindergarten through high school in any public school in Arizona and many other states. While the curriculum provides for these broad-based skills, it also focuses instruction in the area of your choice, be it elementary, middle, or high school; winds, strings, percussion, voice, or general music. You will join our many graduates who are in leadership positions in school music programs in Arizona and across the country. Because the program develops your musical skills as a performer and conductor, this degree also provides an excellent foundation for you if you wish to continue your studies in graduate school with the goal of becoming a professional conductor, college professor, or professional performer. The members of the music education faculty with whom you will be working are all known nationally and internationally in their area of expertise. As a music education major, you will work with a faculty advisor who will guide you through the four-year curriculum. All of your music education classes will be taught by full-time faculty who are committed to undergraduate education.
