Great music teachers transform the lives of their students. We create greatness at BGSU. As a music education major you’ll be training and teaching from the moment you walk through our doors. Our rigorous curriculum - based in scholarship, musicianship and teaching - creates transformative music educators who bring the joy of music into the lives of students, often for the very first time.
Our faculty will position you to live your passion in an academic environment defined by an average ACT score of over 26, and an unusually low faculty to undergraduate ratio of 6:1. As one of the largest and most versatile music education departments in the country, we expose our students to conductors, and master teachers in choral, classroom and instrumental pedagogy, as well as private instruction from our nearly 60 other teaching professionals and specialists.
