Enhance the quality of student development - socially, emotionally and academically through music.
In the first two years of the program you will take practical study in your chosen instrument or the human voice, as well as courses in musicology, musicianship, and electives in music education, followed by a research project in your final year.
You'll explore how to teach and how people learn, in courses designed specifically for music educators. You'll then apply your knowledge in classrooms. Throughout your program you'll be immersed in hands-on workshops, school visits and supervised placements, and gain a strong understanding of day-to-day life in a secondary school.
Specialist one-on-one tutoring and ensemble participation will help you excel in your chosen instrument or voice. To prepare for a teaching career, you'll extend your skills across a range of instruments, and learn techniques for teaching classroom music and directing music ensembles.
You'll graduate as a versatile professional, equipped to teach in schools and other educational contexts, create and perform music, and pursue further research.
Our programs prepare you for your first job and beyond. Here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
