Why Study Music Education

APSU offers a thriving, student-focused music education program where you will learn how to teach by working directly with student musicians in a variety of outreach opportunities throughout your time in our program. In recent years, nearly 100% of APSU music education graduates have either been hired as music teachers or have been accepted into graduate programs. 

As a graduate student you will receive personalized mentoring by nationally-recognized faculty, and participate in small classes that allow for exceptional learning opportunities. We also have an initial-licensure option for students seeking a teacher license. Our goal is to help you achieve your professional goals as you take the nest steps toward a career or additional study at the doctoral level. 

Students who wish to develop their potential as future music educators will benefit from the rich training and the myriad of opportunities offered at APSU.

Professional Licensure Disclosure

Students should be aware that licensure and certification requirements vary from state to state and are subject to change. Licensing agencies or boards also may have requirements in addition to an earned degree. APSU recommends that students who are not Tennessee residents or who plan to seek licensure or certification outside the state of Tennessee contact the appropriate licensing agency or board before they enroll in an academic program designed to lead to licensure or certification and discuss their plans with an advisor.

Please visit the Professional Licensure Disclosure webpage to review specific licensure information for your state and academic program.
