Designed for teachers who want to remain active in the classroom while continuing their education

The University of Cincinnati's nationally ranked and internationally renowned College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) is now accepting applications for its new Master of Music in Music Education. The degree program is specifically designed for music teachers who want to remain active in the classroom while continuing their education. The practical degree program can be completed in three summers and provides a high-quality, individualized curriculum for all music teachers.

Core music education course work focuses on the development of music mastery and advanced pedagogy. Students have the opportunity to refresh their piano skills, study conducting, or advance their performance techniques through applied study.

The program also features enrichment opportunities unique to the summer curriculum, including Orff-Schulwerk certifications for music teachers and study-abroad experiences.

Each summer course load consists of a five-week term with schedules that provide free time in the afternoon to study, practice and maintain personal or professional commitments.
