Practicing music teachers work in a wide and ever–expanding variety of contexts: elementary classroom music; secondary general music classes that might include music technology, keyboard, guitar, music theory, music history, and interdisciplinary collaborations; and an evolving array of large and small ensembles including choral, wind band, string, jazz, gospel, rock, and other groups. The ways of doing “school music” we’ve experienced are often no longer sufficient on their own to reach many of today’s students.
Candidates for the master’s degree are urged through individualized advisement to build on their prior musical training by acquiring the pedagogical skills necessary to teach in the combination of contexts best matched to their aspirations, interests, and musical expertise.
Coursework in music education is grounded in faculty members’ years of experience as successful music teachers working in urban, suburban, and rural contexts. Our faculty is regularly invited to give clinics and workshops on innovative practices and to present research at music education conferences in Connecticut and nationally.
The University of Bridgeport has a long tradition (since 1947) of training excellent music educators, and graduates of this program continue to distinguish themselves as practicing teachers throughout the state and region.
