Reply To: Masters in Ed vs. Music Ed
I hold an M.M., with major in music education, NOT an M.M.E. Difference? Lotsa music history-theory, performance. The university I attended included conducting within the M.M. program, so that’s what I took. I have found what I learned in the coursework has served me very well in teaching and conducting.
Check out a few universities online and compare what they require for an M.Ed. with an M.M.E. I think the M.Ed. may include more courses from the College of Education, and the M.M.Ed might include more courses in the Music Department or College of Music.
