Ne öğreneceğim?

The Department of Music, accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music, is a vital unit of the School of Visual & Performing Arts within the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities. The Department offers a balanced program of musical ensembles, theory, composition, history and specialized music-related courses. Regularly scheduled Department Recitals, outreach recitals to other arts centers and assisted living residences, senior recitals and master classes are just some of the performance opportunities offered through our program.

Occupational Outlook

While many UWL music majors are preparing for teaching in the public schools, many others have music-related professional goals in mind. Recent placement experience of music majors indicates a continued demand for instrumental, choral, and general music teachers. The most important consideration in job placement is a willingness to move and not be limited to a single geographical area.

Music majors who are not interested in teaching may prepare for professional performance, private teaching, or for graduate studies in music. Such graduate studies might lead to preparation for college teaching in a specific area such as music theory, music history, composition, music education, and applied music. Many college positions require a master’s degree; an increasing number also require a doctoral degree.

Opportunities in classical performance are limited without further study beyond the bachelor’s degree. Salary expectations in music teaching are comparable to what one might receive in fields other than music. Advanced degrees mean salary benefits in almost all school systems. Music teachers may choose the added advantage of participating in summer music programs and/or private teaching to increase their annual incomes.
