MUS-2250 Introduction to Music Education

3 credits

Prerequisite: None.

This introductory course in Music Education is intended to provide historical, philosophical, and practical foundations for the teaching of music. Initial exposure to the methods, tools, language, and literature of the professional music education will be reviewed to help the student explore and confirm his or her decision to enter the field. Students will become collegiate members of the professional organization "MENC," read articles in its professional journal, and attend the annual Vermont Music Educators Conference. Field observations in area schools will provide real world examples of public school music instruction. (Fall semesters, every other year)
