Music Education

The music education faculty at Northern Illinois University is committed to practical and realistic preparation of our music education students. We believe that they must have a variety of experiences in methods of teaching, foundations of education, performance, instructional technology, and working with diverse populations. It is expected that graduates from our program will have developed a continuing desire to grow in the art of music and the profession of teaching.
