Music Education

After you complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education, you will be New York State certified to teach vocal and instrumental music in kindergarten through grade 12. This certification allows you to teach in most other states.  

The Music Education degree provides a well-rounded preparation in musical performance, theory, history, piano skills, conducting, instrumental/vocal methods, music education methods, general education, field observations, and student teaching field experience.  All Music Education majors participate in an ensemble while in the program.

An audition is required for admission.
