The human voice is one of God’s greatest gifts, and there’s no better way to praise Him than in song. If you love to sing and have a passion to serve others, our music education with a concentration in vocal and choral degree prepares you for a satisfying career as a vocal or choral music teacher. The music education program balances ear training and applied study in voice with education courses to prepare for success in the classroom. You’ll work with talented faculty members, who will offer personalized feedback about your performance skills. And you’ll spend 100 hours in classroom observation to complement your coursework in the art and science of teaching.
Become a Vocal Music Teacher
Undergraduate music education majors enjoy the benefits of individualized voice lessons and small classes, which focus on you as an individual. Our hybrid program, offering in-person and online learning, can be completed in four years, including a semester of student teaching. You may perform with our chamber group Variations or the Masterworks Chorale to provide learning opportunities to enhance your skills. And our vocal and choral students recently toured Europe.
