Not Accepting Applications

To best meet the needs of our students, we have decided to suspend enrollment in the Post-Master's Advanced Certificate in Music Education. We encourage you to explore Classical Instrumental Performance (Advanced Diploma) or Jazz Instrumental Performance (Advanced Diploma).

Go beyond your graduate education by taking advanced classes in music education and electives in music performance, composition, music technology, music business, or any topic in the Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions. Enhance your career as an innovative music educator teaching in higher education programs, or prepare for doctoral study.
