Music Education (Arizona State University)
Arizona State University’s four-year bachelor’s in music education gives students the tools they need to excel as music teachers. The BMus program is 120 credits and is aimed at those who seek to make a positive impact upon their own students and in their communities. Graduates learn how to develop class lessons and ensembles, traditional and modern music theory and the history of music from the earliest monophonic compositions through contemporary popular music.
The ASU music education program is one of the largest such programs in the U.S., bringing exceptional talent together to teach innovative pedagogical methods in music theory and education. The degree is focused on four principles:
• Community leaders
• Flexible musicians
• Innovative practitioners
• Inquisitive thinkers
The program includes lab courses, the art of teaching, classical and digital music forms and how to navigate a successful career in music education. It includes an internship and preparation for the K-12 teaching certificate. It can also lead to an Arizona teacher certificate that includes reciprocity with other states.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
