Music Education Major
Belmont's Music Education program has been designed to provide the musical and professional training for students who want to become music teachers in the K through 12 educational system.
This curriculum leads to licensure by the State Department of Education in Tennessee - a requirement for all teachers in the state. Licensure is available in vocal music, instrumental music, or both, in grades K-12.
Due to broad requirements of licensure, the program takes eight full semesters plus one summer for completion. Student teaching, a requirement of licensure, involves an entire semester with experiences on both elementary and secondary levels.
Though students may graduate by meeting the requirements of the academic bulletin under which they enter, all current state requirements must be met for teacher licensure. The Music
Education degree is the best preparation for graduate study in music education.
