Music Education (AA)

Program Information

Butler’s Music Education program offers you the opportunity to build the skills necessary for continued study in music education at a baccalaureate degree-granting institution. This program is designed for students with a desire to teach instrumental and/or vocal music from grades pre-kindergarten to 12.

Student must specify Vocal or Instrumental music as primary focus.  While not required, music majors should audition for and participate in small ensembles in addition to College Band or Chorus.  Students with a Vocal focus should also strongly consider taking Dance classes.  The following small ensembles may be available in addition to College Band and Chorus:

  • Pep Band
  • Jazz Ensemble
  • Show Band
  • Chamber Ensembles
  • Percussion Ensemble
  • Chamber Singers
  • A Capella
  • Headliners 
  • Barbershop Quartets

Music Ed (AA) majors are strongly encouraged to enroll in general education courses during a summer semester to reduce course load during the Fall and Spring.  Scholarships may be available for Music Majors.  Visit the Fine Arts and Communication (  homepage for more information.
