Secondary Education and Teaching
Description: This program is designed primarily for those desiring to teach instrumental music in junior or senior high school. It offers a combination of music and education courses, including individual instrumental lessons, music theory, music history, and the professionally required education courses; a choral component is also included. At the end of this five-year combined program, two degrees are granted: a Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education.

The Bachelor of Music (BMus) program is the most intensive of all our music programs; admission is dependent upon a successful performance audition as well as the completion of a music rudiments placement test. Through our program you will have access to award-winning teachers, global researchers, and renowned performers in a warm, close-knit academic community. Whatever your interest – singing, piano performance, computer music composition, or music history – you will have ample instructional resources to guarantee success.
