Achieve These Outcomes

You will have opportunities to accomplish one or more of these goals:

  • Teach music classes at community music schools, senior communities, after-school programs, churches, and other community groups
  • Be a creative ensemble leader and performer for diverse communities
  • Be a music entrepreneur who consistently produces new music for audiences in the community
  • Work as creative administrative staff in a music program at an arts organization, government agency, school, or community group

Choose Your Concentration

The program offers three different tracks: Artist-Teacher, Community Music Leader, and Music Producer. While all three tracks require students to take core courses, applied music courses, research courses, and a recital presentation, each track has its own emphasis and thus pursues slightly different career paths.

Artist-Teacher

The Artist-Teacher track concentrates on performance-related classes.

Community Music Leader

The Community Music Leader track focuses on developing organizational leadership skills.

Music Producer

The Music Producer track is designed for audio recording engineers and producers who desire to use their technology-based skills for community music development.
