Music Education

Meredith’s major in music education leads to K-12 teacher licensure in music. As a graduate of the program, you’ll join others who have gone on to become exceptional teachers throughout North Carolina and across the United States. Methods classes, teaching in Wake County Schools, and opportunities to work with organizations such as the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra prepare you to teach all areas of music at any grade level.
