Do you have a passion for music? Do you have a desire to share your passion with others? If so, a degree in music education could be the perfect way to refine your talents and acquire a wide range of skills that will lead to many opportunities where you can share your gifts. PLNU students of music education actively learn instrumental and choral techniques and methodologies, and explore educational experiences such as conducting, teaching, and interacting with local teachers.
With a major in music education, you’ll develop your musical abilities through applied lessons and large and small ensemble performance opportunities. You’ll take courses that cover subjects like orchestration, conducting, instrumental and choral music methods, and many more that will support your calling to share music with others. Additionally, you’ll develop a broad conceptual understanding of music learning and teaching in elementary and secondary school settings that can lead directly into a California Teaching Credential program, which is offered through PLNU’s School of Education.
