Master of Music in Music Education-Community Music Option

Master of Music in Music Education- Community Music Option

The Master of Music in Music Education – Community Music option, was developed to help meet the growing demand for musician-educators working in community settings and music outreach programs, and to better prepare our music education graduates who are finding employment in these contexts. Our institution is the first public institution of higher learning in the area to offer such a program and the potential is there for expansion into community programs serving visual, dance and dramatic arts. This degree option serves to solidify the inter-relationships that exist among our own discreet music disciplines, as well as within the broader context of the arts, while providing rich cultural connections to our community. In so doing, we view the traditional focus of Western European Art music from a more global perspective taking into account the local cultures, the role music plays in these cultures, and the interplay of the various traditions.
