Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, CCPA’s music education department has been a nurturing space for quality teachers for several decades. Music education majors at Roosevelt University are given the opportunity to engage the best of theory and practice with caring, knowledgeable faculty and opportunities for preservice teaching practice. Students engage the Roosevelt University mission of social justice through focused pedagogy, scholarship, and activism. Students have the opportunity to study with unparalleled applied studio faculty, all of whom are experienced master performers and many of who hold court in the CSO and Lyric Opera.
The program also gives students the opportunity to explore the best of music education and performance, with its unique dual degree programs. Graduates of the music education department at CCPA have enjoyed high records of employment after graduation and many have gone on to direct award-winning programs, including Grammy education awards and featured slots at conferences such as Midwest and ILMEA.
The double major enables strong performers to achieve a high level of musicianship while preparing for teaching licensure. Please refer to the curricula for BM in Music Education and Piano Performance, BM in Music Education and Voice Performance, and BM in Music Education and Instrumental Performance for details.
Music Education students study privately with CCPA’s outstanding faculty, many of whom are members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
