For Music Education Majors

Discover the Music Education College Best for You

Music education is, by far, the most popular music major in the country.

The reasoning behind this is easy to understand – music education majors have excellent job outlook upon graduation.

Some musicians’ local schools and state colleges are adequate for the needs of their music ed. aspirations – others will want to go to a nationally-lauded school with an advanced performance/musical curriculum.

Going through the various thousands of college options is not easy. It can be time consuming and confusing

Nearly every college wants you to think that they have just as good of a music education program as anyone else.

The reality is, while there are great teachers that have come from a wide variety of institutions, there are some schools that not only provide for their music education students a broad, diverse, and open-minded curriculum, they also guarantee a 100% job placement rate upon graduation.

Our college consulting provides guidance for mastery of the complex application and audition process for music education majors, as well as a clearly-defined roadmap for choosing the music colleges best for a music education major’s specific interests & preferences.

As a music education major, you will very likely perform an audition and have an interview with the admissions team at a good music school.

Perhaps more than any other music major, presenting yourself and your personality is key for acceptance to a top-level music education institution:

Additionally, you must also consider this: most music education majors must choose whether they will study instrumental or choral music education in their undergraduate.
