Bringing music into school-aged people’s lives is an exciting and rewarding profession.  The thorough music training offered by the School of Music, the mastery of skills required in music education courses, and the chance to participate in the finest ensembles in the region are opportunities that set the UA Music Education programs apart from all others.  Graduates of the UA programs are leaders in the profession throughout their careers.

At the bachelor’s level, students may choose an instrumental track, which prepares them to teach middle or high school band or orchestra, as well as elementary general music, or they may choose a choral track, which emphasizes middle or high school choral teaching, in addition to elementary general music.  Graduate work develops research skills and the acquisition of advanced teaching and conducting techniques.

The uniquely high-quality preparation at all levels, which has characterized the UA Music Education programs for decades, has set the standard in Alabama.  The faculty welcomes the chance to discuss what our programs offer with all prospective students and their families.
