When you complete your music education program with a P-12 certification, you’ll be equipped to teach music at every grade level. That includes middle and high school where the projected job growth rate for both groups of teachers is 8 percent over the next decade.
But maybe you want to help college-aged students fine-tune their music skills. This degree can help you pursue a postsecondary teaching position where, with a median annual salary of $76,000, employment opportunities are projected to grow 15 percent by 2026.
You might also consider a career path outside of education. Many graduates of the program wind up in the music business, including church choirs, performance bands or as a retailer.
