Music Education

We prepare students to become the music instructors of tomorrow while providing significant performance, teaching, leadership and research opportunities.

USC Music Education encompasses three main elements.

  • Teacher education, including emphases in early childhood/elementary, choral, strings and winds/percussion.
  • Leadership programs, including the Children's Music Development Center, the Choirs of Carolina Mentoring Initiative, the Congaree New Horizon Band Program and the USC String Project.
  • Research and creative activities, including a wide range of study options.
