Music Education: Do you want to teach music?
Have you dreamed of teaching at the college level or owning your own studio? Your Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education will prepare you for a career as a teacher for either Choral or Instrumental music in grades K-12. Many who graduate with this degree find rewarding careers sharing their enjoyment of music with students in public schools all over the country. Many others share their faith and their enjoyment of music in Christian schools in the United States and overseas. Imagine using your musical skills each day to inspire your students to explore their potential!
At TFC there are many opportunities to student teach in music locally and overseas. After graduation, you can look forward to seeking music teaching employment anywhere in the United States or overseas in various types of public and private schools.
One of our greatest resources is highly qualified and dedicated faculty who draw on their spiritual roots, professional experience and expertise to nurture your talent. We will prepare you to teach choral and instrumental groups while learning to instruct, manage and inspire music students in elementary school and beyond. You’ll also learn how to play and teach instruments you have never even touched prior to your time at TFC.
The Professional Standards Commission of the State of Georgia fully approves the program, and graduates may be certified to teach upon graduation.
Every music student will be required to perform in a number of recitals, usually one per semester. For more information on these recitals please see the General Music page.
