Certificate of Graduate Study in Composing Together

Composing Together is a nine-credit certificate of graduate study in teaching music composition. The certificate requires the completion of three courses and may stand alone or may constitute a sub-concentration with the M.M. in music education. The courses within the certificate program, Composing Together: Level I (MUE 621), II (MUE 622), and III (MUE 623), will develop the teacher as a composer and as a facilitator of children's composition in K-12 music classrooms, private and group lessons, computer laboratories, and rehearsal settings. Teachers will learn to design, implement, and assess composition units that they will be able to teach within their own school systems. See course descriptions below.
