All students majoring in music education will be reviewed and counseled by the music education committee during each year of full-time enrollment. The purpose of these reviews is to assist the student in developing all the skills necessary to be an effective music educator. One year before student teaching the student’s accomplishments are reviewed by the entire music faculty. In order to receive an endorsement to student teach, the student must receive a satisfactory evaluation in all areas of music study. All music education majors must pass the required piano proficiency examination prior to endorsement for student teaching. Students taking this major must apply for admission into the teacher preparation program with the education department and are required to complete the professional education program requirements offered through the education department.
