Music - Choral Education Emphasis Requirements (BM)

The Music Education Choral Emphasis is designed to prepare the student for a career of teaching choral music in grades 6-12, and leads to licensure in secondary choral music. Students whose primary performing area is not voice must demonstrate, through audition before the voice faculty, a satisfactory level of vocal ability before being admitted to this program. The outline of courses assumes a primary performing area of either voice or keyboard (piano or organ). Students who wish to add general music licensure to the program of studies in the choral emphasis must complete additional course work.1

For BM (Music Education Choral): Students seeking additional K-12 General Music licensure must also enroll in MUSC 166, MUSED 452, and its corequisite CIFLD 492, totaling 6 additional units. Students who fail to earn a grade of B- or better in MUSC 177 must enroll for one semester of MUSC 171. Directed teaching is divided into 6 elementary-level units (CIFLD 411) and 6 secondary level units (CIFLD 414). Note that, for students seeking only 6-12 Choral certification, Directed Teaching is divided into 6 middle school-level units (CIFLD 412) and 6 secondary level units (CIFLD 414).
