Bachelor of Music (Music Education)

 

A four-year program of studies leading to a Bachelor of Music degree with a specialization for teaching music at either the Secondary or Elementary and Middle Years level as well as preparation in a second teaching area.

 

 

I am very happy with the education and experiences I have received in the department and I would encourage all high school students to look into the U of S Music Department seriously and see what it has to offer them.
- Chelsea Marshall, Music Education Student

 

 

 

 

Students completing this program are automatically accepted into the College of Education's two-year Bachelor of Education program with music as their primary teaching area as well as a second teaching area of their choice. The completion of the B.Ed. degree qualifies candidates to teach in all Canadian school-based systems. There are many music-specialist positions available to teachers who are entering the work force. These combined degree programs also allow for teaching positions that involve part-time music along with other subject specialties and will train students to meet the challenge of a variety of teaching positions in a flexible job market with two separate degrees.

Elementary and Middle-Years students will receive training as a music specialist and as a classroom generalist teacher with a broad array of academic electives and Education courses to fit their educational needs. Both Elementary and Secondary students will develop a second teaching area in any academic field including the Natural and Social Sciences, Humanities, Languages, Art, and Drama.

A particular strength of the Bachelor of Music in Music Education program is the music-specific school-based observation and teaching experience that students receive in their first three years. This is augmented by a school-based teaching experience in their second teaching area followed by an extensive music internship in the final year of the Bachelor of Education degree.

• Four years of Applied Music with weekly one-hour private lessons and recitals in years three and four
