Music education programs are available in choral, choral and keyboard, and instrumental. More than one-half of the students in the School of Music are preparing for careers as music teachers in elementary or secondary schools. In addition, undergraduates interested primarily in performance careers often take advantage of the teacher-preparation curriculum, which fulfills the educational requirements for Florida teaching certification in grades K-12, and in most other states. Programs are accredited by NASM and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
The Bachelor of Music in music education prepares students to become musicians and music teachers in a K-12 instructional setting. Through studies in conducting, rehearsal planning, teaching techniques, and theory, applied performance, music literature and history and piano, students will be able to structure and apply music for meaningful and effective music class and ensemble instruction.
