Practice, perform and perfect your music and teaching skills with a master’s from Capital
Capital’s Master of Music in Music Education with Instrumental Emphasis is designed for music educators like you. In just three summers of intensive coursework and hands-on workshops, you’ll be challenged to elevate your teaching and playing technique and then bring what you learn in the summer to your classroom in the fall.
In the Instrumental Emphasis program track, you’ll encounter a blend of the latest music education theory and real-world applications. Whether in class or a workshop, you’ll learn from a distinguished faculty of respected scholars, sought-after teachers, conductors, clinicians and world-class performers. Your master’s program will culminate in a Capstone Project consisting of either Master’s Thesis or a Master’s Presentation. Along the way, you’ll develop a network of first-tier music educators — professionals to whom you can turn throughout your career for advice and guidance.
A master’s program designed to work around — and for — you.In the Instrumental Emphasis track, you can participate in our four-day Complete Band Director Workshop and learn how to establish, administer and teach a well-balanced band program. And if you’re running your own summer band camp, you can enroll in just one of the two summer sessions and still earn your master’s degree in only three summers. This flexibility is just one of many reasons so many music educators choose Capital for their Master of Music in Music Education.Instrumental Emphasis Highlights
