CCM is now accepting applications for a three-summer master's in music education program
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 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. This practical, in-person 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 when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
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.

June 21, 2021
The UC College-Conservatory of Music's virtual performance series continues with a pair of Spring Opera Gala concerts. Originally broadcast on June 17 and 18, both concerts are now available for on-demand viewing. Watch an excerpt from the second gala concert below. CCM's Spring Opera Gala is a double-cast production: the same repertoire is performed during both broadcasts, but each features a different cast of singers performing arias and duets from such classic Italian operas as Gaetano Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore, Gioacchino Rossini’s Otello and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci. Each concert stream also begins with a spirited performance of the Overture to Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri by the CCM Philharmonia and concludes with a rousing rendition of the “Sola, sola in buio loco” sextet from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
