At Boston University, we have been in the business of music education since 1872. We have long believed that every person, regardless of age or prior experience, deserves to understand and participate in music. As leaders of the Tanglewood Symposium, we embraced a rich variety of musical expression and new technologies to expand musicianship.
The 21st century is marked by unprecedented access to diverse musical practices and experiences. In cultures throughout the world, music is used to celebrate and to grieve, enhance emotional and physical well-being, and bring people together in community.
And music education has never been more important.
Our faculty of internationally recognized scholars, performers, and educators work to promote greater understanding of music in society, create new musical expressions, and expand access to music teaching and learning. They are eager to share their work, and to welcome the next generation of music education leaders to Boston University.
If you are ready to examine your professional practice, to think deeply and critically about music education and its changing landscape, if you are ready to take on the challenge of creating a positive musical future for children, families, schools, and communities around the globe, then you belong at BU.>Learn More
