Elon, NC, United States
Elon’s music education program prepares graduates with the essential knowledge, skills, and cultural awareness to teach in the diverse 21st century classroom. The program instills and nurtures a commitment to first-rate teaching, lifelong creative expression, and the willingness to be enriched by and value the many and varied musical cultures found in the communities in which they will serve. 


Music education offers a comprehensive curriculum wherein skills and knowledge gained in one course continue tobe utilized and refined as students move through theory, conducting, and methods courses.  This integrated approach, in addition to providing tremendous confidence, is the foundation on which our students are prepared to be excellent educators, creative musicians that continue to perform, and practitioners that will honor the cultural diversity found in the communities that they will serve.

In our primary goal of preparing our students to be excellent teachers the curriculum is devised to engage students in activities, discussions, and other forms of reflection and inquiry providing educational experiences that advance students toward moments of discovery and greater clarity of course content, self, and others.

Our students thrive in an environment that fosters high levels of musicianship and performance ability.  In addition they develop critical thinking skills that advance their perceptions, sensitivities, and beliefs while enhancing their awareness and understanding of others, who they are, and what they have to offer in a classroom.   We believe that this kind of educator can design and implement experiences that demand the highest standards in the classroom while honoring every student and the life experiences they bring to the process of learning.
