Experience Music Education at KU
Our undergraduate degree is a 4-year program that prepares students to assume teaching positions in choral, orchestra, general music, and band PreK-12 jobs. Students take courses in methods and pedagogy, conducting and rehearsing, learn comprehensive music skills through private lessons and ensembles prior to student teaching and gaining state licensure.
The degree program is tailored for each student to emphasize skills and knowledge in areas the students identifies.
The doctoral program is individualized to allow the student to gain teaching and research skills through courses in a major and a minor area in preparation for university positions.
