Master of Music in Music Education

A flexible degree for full-time educators.

Designed for music educators currently teaching in a K-12 setting, Butler University’s Master of Music in Music Education degree is a three year online program with an annual one-week summer residency.  This model allows the music educator’s own classroom to become the laboratory for advancing teaching and applying best practices while maintaining full-time employment.  All courses are taught utilizing collaborative technologies to allow for both accessibility and the development of meaningful connections between professors and other student-colleagues.

Students may also elect an Emphasis in Rehearsal and Conducting Studies, utilizing ensembles within their current teaching setting.  Related coursework will include individualized conducting and rehearsal instruction via remote access (or in person if possible) by Butler University conducting faculty. Students may elect an emphasis in a different area of study, pending advisor approval.
