Music Education; B.Mus. (Minor)

Program Overview

This Music Education Minor offers students the ability to gain training in music pedagogy, whether for a studio, classroom, or rehearsal setting.

Ed.) for the purposes of Teacher Certification (note that, by itself, the minor provides no official certification).
