When you teach a student something new, seeing their eyes light up, watching them get excited about their progress — that's what makes being an educator so rewarding. But when you teach music, add to that satisfaction the fact that you're introducing students to something that can provide a lifetime of enjoyment and enrichment. Whether you want to guide young children into the world of music or help high-school students refine their performance skills, Northwest's music education program can prepare you to be an effective teacher in a public or private school setting.
Associate Professor of Music
"Northwest University's music education program boasts a very high success rate of students getting employment right after graduation. Built on a solid biblical and liberal arts core, it also guides the student through all the state requirements for musical endorsement, as well as the professional requirements required by the State of Washington. Prospective students who are looking for a faith-based degree that certifies them to teach in public or private school settings don't need to look any further."
