Online Master of Music in Music Education

By transforming yourself, you will lift your music department, school, and community. And that changes the world.

You understand that music engages your students in ways that other subjects cannot. You have witnessed a new intensity in them as they really hear a piece of music for the first time. You’ve felt your students’ joy in working as a team, and you’ve been moved when they’ve performed at venues where the healing power of music is especially needed such as the local soup kitchen, veteran’s hospital, and hospice.

Boston University has long stood for music education that goes beyond schooling, extending active music participation from infancy through senior adulthood. Our faculty is comprised of leaders in early childhood music education, community music facilitation, music technology, and lifespan engagement. They are eager to share their expertise with you because expanding the number of highly qualified music educators is at the center of their careers.

As a Master of Music degree student, you will critically examine a variety of research that informs music education. You will discuss and analyze philosophical, sociological and psychological ideas and problems in the field of music education. Music theory and analytical techniques in composition will sharpen the eye and ear.  Scholarly writing and research skills are honed as you choose from a list of engaging electives. Your student colleagues will be music education professionals from around the world who will become lifelong friends and professional contacts.

Our online music education degree graduates leave re-energized, with their teaching bolstered by new techniques, their research skills grounded in theory and history, and their analytic skills sharpened.

By transforming yourself, you will lift your music department, school, and community. And that changes the world.
