MUS 255

Instrumental/Choral Music Education Lab

This course provides an environment in which future ensemble directors learn to rehearse and arrange for middle school and high school instrumental and choral ensembles. Juniors apply their pedagogical knowledge of the sequencing of lesson materials, select appropriate methods and literature for school ensembles, prescribe rehearsal techniques and refine their personal communicative teaching skills. First and second year-students examine a variety of curricular issues, including the development of an effective teaching style and the integration of the National Standards for Arts Education into their ensemble teaching and assessment.

Distribution Area Prerequisites Credits
1/4 course (first- and second-year students); 1/2 course (third-year students)
