If teaching music in a K-12 school is your calling, then a music degree with an emphasis in K-12 licensure is a good choice. You can choose to emphasize your coursework in either instrumental licensure or vocal/general licensure depending on your career plans. Both options include courses in musicianship and performance, music history, pedagogy and conducting, among other topics. Private instruction and ensemble participation is also included.
