Music Teaching and Learning

Our Mission

We believe that all individuals have musical potential, and each person deserves access to a comprehensive music education. To more fully realize these ideals, our department prepares students to become articulate leaders, to develop greater understanding of learning and teaching processes, and to develop broad perspectives of music and education in contemporary cultures.

Our graduates include successful public and community school music teachers, music professors at major universities, leaders in professional music organizations, and performers of note in various venues throughout the world.
