Bachelor of Music

The performance field of specialization includes concentrations in keyboard (pedagogy is also available), organ, voice, brass, woodwind, percussion, and stringed instrument. Fields of specializations are also offered in both composition and theory. The Bachelor of Music in Music Education field of specialization replaces that formerly known as Bachelor of Music (leading toward teacher certification).

Specialization in Music Education prepares students to teach choral, instrumental, and general classroom music in kindergarten, elementary, middle, junior high, and senior high schools. This program leads toward an all-level teaching certificate in the state of Texas.

More information regarding these degrees can be found in the Undergraduate Student Handbook.
