Music Education

OVERVIEWMusic Ed Majors at the 2013 NAfME National In-Service Conference in Nashville, TN

The music education program prepares future teachers to become excellent in their field, because we believe every child deserves an excellent music teacher.

We affirm that "music teachers, more than any other occupational group in music, have the professional expertise and the opportunity to equip both future citizens and whole communities for liberating, powerful musical lives."1

The program meets all the requirements for K-12 music certification in the state of Louisiana. Students pursuing this course of study earn a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in instrumental or vocal education. A Master of Arts in Teaching is available in the College of Education, which allows individuals to add K-12 certifications in instrumental or vocal education to their pedigree. Links can be found below.
