Music Education (Pre-Teacher Certification) Major
Prepare to Teach Music
The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for public schools endorses the Bachelor of Music in Music Education (Pre-Teacher Certification) for students wishing to pursue a career in K-12 music education. This degree program trains future music teachers in all areas including choral, instrumental, and general music, offering preparation in the necessary skills, knowledge, and appropriate methodologies for success at all levels of music education within California.
The music education major provides students with further opportunities to hone their skills by volunteering with local schools and arts organizations such as the Azusa Conservatory of Music. In addition, one-on-one faculty interaction provides guidance for students as they graduate and move on to credential and master’s degree programs.

A degree from Azusa Pacific University is respected and recognized internationally, and accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). The university is regionally accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).
