The practical degree program can be completed in three summers and provides a high-quality, individualized curriculum for all music teachers.

A teacher instructs young students on stringed instruments.Core music education course work focuses on the development of music mastery and advanced pedagogy. Students have the opportunity to refresh their piano skills, study conducting, or advance their performance techniques through applied study.

The program also features enrichment opportunities unique to the summer curriculum, including Orff-Schulwerk or Kodály certifications for music teachers and study-abroad experiences.
