Music Faculty, Bands / Music Education "I love the balanced music education curriculum. Not only is it designed to develop great teachers but the degree can be completed in four years and 100% of our annual BME graduates find jobs in the field of education.  Great faculty, great students, four years of study, and a job at the end--what’s not to love?"

Music Education, Waddy, KY "Being at MSU in the Vocal Music Education Program has been quite an experience. I joined Concert Choir and Chamber Singers my first semester here at MSU and later Jazz Vocal Ensemble. With each group I have been introduced to many different genres and styles or music that I'd never heard or been apart of...Coming to MSU has taught me many things and given me chances to experience what teachers go through and how they can conquer whatever they put their mind to."
