Supplemental Information for the BM with a Major in General, Choral and Instrumental Music (Teaching Certification)

This program is designed to prepare students for entry into the music teaching profession and related career areas.

Those students who choose a keyboard or guitar concentration must take the secondary voice/instrument appropriate to the intended teaching area and qualify for participation in the appropriate music laboratory (see subsequent section, "Graduation Requirements").

When the student has completed the 12-semester-hour requirement in the applied concentration, the Applied Music Examining Committee in the student's area of concentration decides if any additional hours are required.
