Music Education: Instrumental Emphasis

The School of Music at Western Michigan University offers a Bachelor of Music in music education with instrumental emphasis degree program. 

Music education at the WMU School of Music is a four-year bachelor's degree program that emphasizes a solid foundation in music performance and field-based learning experiences. Music education majors complete the same musical education as performance majors during their first two years. In their junior and senior years, students focus on music education by teaching young students. WMU partners with area school districts to provide practicum experiences in each music education methods class.

Graduates of the instrumental music education program are found leading K-12 music programs all over the United States, and some continue their studies and teach at the collegiate level.
