1 Prospective Student Packet Fall 2013 Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Music Education Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Music Education Eric E. Branscome, Ph.D. Coordinator of Music Education

2 Dear Student Greetings and welcome to the Music Education program at Austin Peay State University. We are excited that you are considering a degree in music education at APSU. Music Education is a challenging and rewarding career in which highly qualified professionals have the opportunity to continue their own creative endeavors as musicians, while providing a solid musical foundation and instilling a life-long love of music in their students. It is our goal to challenge you to grow personally, musically, and professionally as a music education major, and as you begin what we hope will be a successful and long-lasting career as a music educator. We understand that there is a lot of information you need to know before you choose to major in music education. This packet was created to provide you with the basic information about the music education program at APSU. If you cannot find the answers to your questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of the faculty listed on the last pages of this packet. Eric E. Branscome, Ph.D. Coordinator of Music Education Assistant Professor of Music

3 Answers to Common Questions Concerning a Degree in Music Education What does it mean to be a music education major? Music teachers are both professional educators and professional musicians. Therefore your course work will prepare you to be a competent educator and exceptional vocalist or instrumentalist. Specifically, your major field of study (music) will be accompanied by a minor in professional education. Upon successful completion of your course work and additional requirements, you will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Music Education or a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education, and an all-level music teacher certification from the state of Tennessee. Although you may have specific career goals as an elementary music specialist or secondary ensemble director, you will be trained and certified to do both. What is the difference between a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Music Education? The only difference between the two degrees is that the Bachelor of Arts (BA) requires six hours of Intermediate Foreign Language that are not required of the B.S. program. Usually, the vocal faculty suggest the BA for singers since foreign language competence is essential for solo and ensemble singing. What can I do with a degree in music education? A Music Education Degree prepares students to teach music in a variety of settings and to students of all ages. Music Education graduates typically pursue careers as: Pre-school Music Teachers Elementary/General Music Teachers Choral Directors (Middle School or High School) Band Directors (Middle School or High School) Orchestra Directors (Middle School or High School) Private Studio Instructors Professional Performers Many of our graduates also pursue graduate degrees in music education, performance, or other professional music endeavors. Can I graduate in four years? Although some students take five years to complete their coursework, a four-year degree is manageable. APSU provides a four-year plan of study (enclosed in this handbook) that includes a final semester of student teaching. When you enroll, you will be provided with a faculty advisor in the music department who will work with you to enroll in the appropriate courses you need to graduate on time. Graduating in four years assumes that you take the courses in the order in which they are suggested and that you successfully complete each course on your first attempt.

4 What can APSU offer that I cannot get at other colleges or universities? First, you will participate in a thriving music department, surrounded by a culturally and musically rich community. Next, you will have the opportunity to learn from some of the most notable musicians in the field. Third, you will experience a completely revised, comprehensive music education program that will prepare you to be a top-quality music educator. Finally, all APSU music education majors graduate with a minor in Professional Education, making you a highly desirable candidate in a competitive job market. In addition to these opportunities, the APSU Department of Music is intricately involved with music education across Tennessee and throughout the U.S. Our students regularly participate in local, state-wide, and national clinics, conventions, and festivals. APSU is also host to a number of workshops, contests, music enrichment programs, and other events in which music education majors are involved. A sampling of opportunities includes: APSU Honor Band Midsouth Marching Band Invitational String Festival North Tennessee Concert Festival Choir Fest Children s Arts InterAction Program APSU Preschool Music Instruction APSU Community School of the Arts Children s Concert Series Camp Granada (Summer Music Day Camp) Watauga Arts Academy Homeschool Music Program When I graduate, will I automatically become certified to teach? APSU can only provide a music education degree to students who have successfully completed the course requirements. The teacher licensure (certification) is offered by the Tennessee Department of Education. To obtain the certification, you must pass the required Praxis exams described below. Your education and music education faculty will walk you through the entire process when you reach the right point in your degree. Should I get a music education degree in Tennessee if I plan to live in another state? Yes, most states offer reciprocity for teacher certification, meaning that they will accept teaching licenses from other states. Based on where you live, you may be required to take a different exam within a given timeframe. At the very least, you will have the necessary degree and credentials to be hired in another state. If I don't want to teach for a living, should I get a music education degree as a safety net? A music education degree opens the doors to many opportunities in music. While we do not view teaching as a "fall-back" position, the options are there for those who seek them. In addition, we have found that many who seek other degrees in music (performers, composers, directors) often find themselves teaching at some point in their careers. It is best to be prepared.
