One of the most TRANSFORMATIONAL experiences for students, a hallmark of the Music Education (Instrumental) program from University of Maryland Baltimore County, is a weekly service-learning internship throughout students’ 1st and 2nd years at UMBC that takes place in Baltimore City schools in partnership with the Baltimore Symphony’s OrchKids program. 

Program Overview

This REAL-WORLD WORK EXPERIENCE allows UMBC students to positively contribute to the Baltimore community, demonstrating our shared VALUE FOR SERVICE, while substantially expanding their resume with two years of classroom teaching intern experience. 

Students further gain experiences in individual music classroom internships in other coursework that give them experiences in an array of Maryland schools—most often in Baltimore County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County, and/or Montgomery County. In their final year, aspiring music educators typically split their time between two schools of different levels based on their interests and aspirations; the year begins with observation and gradually expands to a full-time teaching internship in the spring semester.
