Students entering the Pedagogy Major seek specialization in the teaching of their particular performance area.  An important emphasis is placed on excellence in performance as well as excellence in teaching and students are frequently given the opportunity to teach elective undergraduate courses within the School of Music.

Instruments of study within the Master of Music in Pedagogy are: Voice, Viola, Violin, Cello, Classical Bass, Harp, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn, Euphonium, Tuba, Percussion, Organ, Piano, and Guitar.

Pedagogy courses include two semesters of pedagogy, and one or two semesters of supervised teaching. Applied study and literature are also part of the major. Supporting music courses include research, theory, history and ensemble. Vocal Pedagogy students participate and can be Graduate Assistants in the Vocal Arts Lab.

Pedagogy majors are required to successfully complete comprehensive written and oral examinations. The culminating project is a choice of either the lecture recital or the thesis/project track.
