While prior teaching experience is not a requirement for entrance into this degree program, individuals considering the pursuit of a master's degree in music education should plan on teaching one to three years prior to initial enrollment or before completing the degree. It is the conviction of this faculty that graduate study will be more meaningful to the individual if he or she has first gained experience in the field.
