Reply To: MFA question
I’m not sure what state you are interested in teaching in, but I can speak to what I know of California schools. In CA pay scales and hiring decisions are made between the school district and unions, but most will give an additional stipend for a Master’s degree as long as it is related to your subject matter. In your case, an MFA in World Percussion would certainly apply and I see no reason why you would not be credited for that degree. However, this is not a state that requires a Master’s degree, so I can’t answer to that.
