CCM is now accepting applications for a new master’s degree in Music Education that will be offered beginning in June 2018. Designed for those who want to remain active in the classroom while continuing their education, the practical degree program can be completed in three summers and provides a high-quality, individualized curriculum for all music teachers.
Core music education course work focuses on the development of music mastery and advanced pedagogy, and students can choose from a wide range of electives to expand their areas of expertise. Each summer course load consists of a 5-week term with schedules that provide free time in the afternoon to study, practice and maintain personal or professional commitments.
CCM master’s in Music Education students have the opportunity to refresh their piano skills, study conducting, or advance their performance techniques through applied study. All courses are led by CCM’s world-renowned faculty, with experts from multiple divisions of the college.
The master’s in Music Education program also features enrichment opportunities unique to the summer curriculum, including Orff-Schulwerk or Kodály certifications for music teachers and study-abroad experiences.
