About

This Music Education program from Otterbein University leads to Music Multi-Age licensure and prepares you for teaching instrumental and vocal music in the public and private schools, grades preK-12. Students will select either a choral/general emphasis, or an instrumental/general emphasis.

Overview

In addition to the common core of musicianship and general studies, the musician electing a career in school-based teaching must develop competencies in professional education and in specific areas of musicianship.

This Music Education program from Otterbein University also may qualify you to apply for graduate study in music or music education.

Ohio Collegiate Music Educators Association

Otterbein’s chapter of the Ohio Collegiate Music Educators Association (OCMEA) is one of the largest in the state. Music Education majors are required to join this organization to fulfill their course requirements. This organization is the collegiate “arm” of the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) and the Music Educators National Conference (MENC), and is open to all music majors, but is geared toward enhancing the music education curriculum.

OCMEA coordinates several opportunities throughout the year to take lessons learned in the classroom and convert them into applicable teaching experiences. Projects have included teaching music workshops at Harrison Street Elementary School and preparing a lessons and activities book to accompany the Westerville Symphony’s Young People’s Concerts.

Otterbein Future Music Teachers Association

Otterbein has a chapter of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) called OFMTA (Otterbein Future Music Teachers Assocation). The national group was formed to give independent music teachers a resource for networking and to provide professional opportunities and further training. Students who are currently teaching private lessons on any instrument or voice or would like to get started are invited to join the group. For more information, please contact Nick Ross.
