Music Educators

For those with, or working on, Masters degrees, what major did you pick? I’m on my second semester of Music Ed, which is what my undergrad is in. Did you do music for both or something different?

I started an Ed Leadership but decided on Class #3 that being an administrator was not what I wanted to do in life. So I switched to a MA program in Secondary Ed at a local private college simply because it was more convenient for time and geography. The program schedule, geared toward teachers, included many, many 2-week “seminar” settings during the summer and Saturday classes throughout the year. The school also had a number of satellite campus sites available, so I sometimes had to travel 90 minutes per class session...which is what I would have had to have done for all classes for a music degree. For me, the diploma was more important than the course of study.

I am currently halfway through a masters in teaching with a certificate in special education. I just happen to be passionate about special ed and feel it will make me more marketable as either a music teacher (which I currently teach) or a gen ed teacher (which I am also certified to teach). I think you should pursue what your passion is and also what you feel will best further your career.

I just completed my Masters degree! Originally I wanted to major in Music Therapy, and possibly use it within my district or even as another career. However the program wasn't accommodating for those working full-time.. I ended up majoring in Music Ed.

I did my first Masters in Arts Management. I have passions outside the classroom and outside education that I wanted to learn and train for. It was a great decision for me. I’ve been able to work in some fun roles in professional arts organizations and its allowed me to become a strong fine arts leader in my current school district. I’m all about options and following what’s best for you! Best wishes!

Just finished summer 2 of MME, I have a BME already. I chose the program I’m in because of the focus on band directors and improving our daily needs as opposed to having to sit through a bunch of gen ed stuff again
