They are seasoned practitioners, most of whom transitioned to higher education from K-12 classrooms. They are internationally renowned in their areas of expertise and bring an invaluable range of perspectives to the Master of Arts in Music and Music Education (M.A. M&ME) program. Their depth and breadth of experience includes comprehensive musicianship, early childhood music, instrumental pedagogy, vocal and choral performance, assessment, improvisation, jazz, technology, and the full spectrum of public and private school music through graduate school and research practices.
As leaders in the field, M.A. M&ME faculty members are authors of textbooks that graduate music education students across the world read, and their scholarship regularly appears in leading journals.
The faculty’s overall experience and scholarship is deep, vast and incredible. It’s invaluable to music teachers who need to be versed in a broad array of educational settings and students. They continuously challenged our thinking and put the onus on us to think for ourselves, discover new perspectives, and use the program to address our own professional experiences and needs.
