Excellent Musicians Who Teach Well
The Music Education program of the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music is committed to developing excellent musicians who teach well. We encourage students to achieve the highest standards of musical performance, musical understanding and professional demeanor. We also provide a strong theoretical and practical foundation in the field of music education, enabling students to acquire the finest teaching skills. We wish to develop teacher who strive for excellence, because the children they teach deserve the very best.
A Program that Prepares You to Teach Anywhere
Both in and out of the classroom, the CUA Music Education program provides the framework for developing excellent musicians who teach well. Through a combination of music, music education, and liberal studies courses (including courses in philosophy and theology), students can obtain the necessary knowledge, skills and dispositions to become certified to teach in both public, charter, Catholic and other private schools. We seek to prepare students for the real requirements and rigors of certified music teaching as well as exploring novel ways to offer and deliver music instruction in other emerging locations for instruction and service.
