Teacher Licensure

Teacher Licensure in Music Education

To seek an endorsement in music education, you must complete the courses for a major in music and take additional courses to meet teaching certification requirements.

You may prepare to teach NK-12 vocal/general music or NK-12 instrumental music. You may also choose to specialize in 1) instrumental music in which the student's primary performance medium is usually an orchestral instrument or 2) choral and general music in which the student's primary performance medium is voice or the student opts to pursue both specializations.

Many students choose electives in the specialization which is not their main focus so they can prepare to meet professional challenges.
