Music Education

The Music Education Department at Berklee offers innovative undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students for careers as music teachers.

We offer three graduate programs in music education. They are designed for working teachers, with classes in the summers and evenings so that students can keep their teaching jobs during their graduate studies.

  • Our Master of Music in music education provides students with the opportunity to explore contemporary issues and topics in music education, including culturally sustaining music education, cutting-edge music technology, urban music education, and much more.
  • Our unique Master of Music in music education (autism concentration) includes intensive study of cutting-edge pedagogies and evidence-based practices for teaching music to students with autism and other disabilities. This program and the graduate certificate below are part of the Berklee Institute for Accessible Arts Education (BIAAE).
  • Our Graduate Certificate in music education and autism offers individuals who already possess a master's degree to take our five autism-based core courses and earn a credential for their studies.
