Ithaca's music education majors are known not only for being great teachers, but also top-notch performers and musicians.
We believe performance skills are a vital part of your preparation to teach others. You can take advantage of that approach in our four-and-a-half-year, double-degree program. You'll get the best of both worlds -- field-based preparation in music education and intensive study of your instrument or voice. You will also study conducting, take part in one or more of our many ensembles, and learn how to use multimedia in the classroom.
This program places equal emphasis on both music education and performance. You can learn more about the music school's related undergraduate programs in each individual area:
