Music: Jazz Pedagogy Emphasis
The graduate emphasis in jazz pedagogy offers students advanced studies in jazz improvisation, jazz history, jazz arranging, instrument pedagogy and ensemble directing and conducting. This program is designed for students with the goal of becoming a music educator at either the secondary or collegiate level.
Special Program Requirements
* Fall admission recommended because of the sequential curriculum design.
* Performance audition required on primary instrument or voice.
* Submit a writing sample of no less than 3 pages. Ideally this will be an undergraduate term paper or other essay that contains references to secondary sources that are cited in an accepted scholarly style. If no writing sample of this type is available, another type of sample is acceptable; examples might include program notes, a statement of teaching philosophy for music education applicants, a statement of creative process for composition applicants, or any other demonstration of the applicant's writing ability.
* Contact department for further information.
