The Music Education Division selects and prepares students based on one important,
yet extremely simple premise — that every student should have the best instruction
possible. It is the objective of the Music Education Division to instill in the prospective
teacher the ability to teach music effectively to every child, regardless of gender,
race, ethnic origin, socioeconomic status or ability. Students experience a variety
of teaching techniques, learning structures, and academic environments through a variety
of field experiences (pre-school through secondary levels) and, beginning August 2013,
a year-long residency internship. The foundation of the Music Education Division is
based on a collaboration of current research and practical teaching in which students
are encouraged to seek, evaluate, and appropriately implement current ideas and developments
in teaching music.
