Master of Music Education

The mission of the Master of Music Education (MME) Program is to inspire educators with ideas, technologies, and techniques that can be immediately applied in the music classroom. The MME Program provides the PDE required Instructional Level II certification credits for SAS and inclusive classrooms, and degree options include a 30-hour thesis track and a 36-hour non-thesis track. MME coursework takes place year-round---online during the academic year and in on-site and blended formats during the summer. LVC also offers a generous transfer policy. With careful planning, degrees can be completed in three years.

Summer courses meet during a seven-week semester. This complements your work schedule and gives you the opportunity to think about and reflect on your work in a way you couldn't during the school year. LVC faculty have extensive music education expertise. What's more, each summer a nationally known professional in the field of music education comes to campus as a visiting faculty member.

Please be sure to join us when this summer’s guest professor, Dr. Doreen Rao, presents MME 890.01: Conducting Young Choirs in the World Today: Pathways to Musical Engagement, June 29–July 3, 2015. Dr. Rao is well-known as one of the world’s leaders in the area of choral conducting and pedagogy. More information about her impressive contributions to choral music education is available at


Circumstances require that course dates be adjusted for MME 890.02, Wind Literature and Music Criticism. The course was originally schedule to run from Monday, June 29–Friday, July 3. However, the course will be adjusted to run Wednesday, June 24–Tuesday, June 30. The times of the course will remain the same.

We are very sorry for whatever inconvenience this adjustment may cause you. Please address questions to Cherie VanZant, Graduate and Community Programs Administrator for the Music Department, at or 717-867-6383.
