Music Education at The College of Wooster
Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and the Ohio Department of Education, the degree Bachelor of Music Education in Public School Teaching leads to licensure in the State of Ohio at the elementary and/or secondary levels.
With foundations firmly rooted in the field of Music Education, our faculty brings a combined 45 years of experience teaching in public schools. You’ll frequently hear the phrase “early and often,” regarding our philosophy of classroom exposure and experience; our majors are out in the public school classrooms from their very first music education class at Wooster. The curriculum prepares students for a career in choral, instrumental, and/or general music.
To gain admission to the Bachelor of Music Education in Public School Teaching degree program, a student must pass an entrance audition before a faculty jury of three, to be appointed by the chairperson. The audition will occur near the end of the second semester of college and must demonstrate the student’s ability to perform at a high level, the literature of several historical periods and styles. A student wishing to perform an entrance audition must notify the chairperson in writing at least three weeks prior to the audition. Only after passing the entrance audition may the student declare as a major the Bachelor of Music Education. A student who does not pass the entrance audition in the second semester may have a second opportunity in the first two weeks of the third semester.
