Welcome to Music Education at Wright State University. My name is Bill Jobert and I serve as Coordinator of the Music Education. The Music Education Committee is made up of the faculty members who teach our conducting courses, music pedagogy courses, and music education sequenced courses. These faculty members represent years of elementary and secondary music teaching experience and most continue to work with students of all ages through honor bands and choirs, summer music camps, marching bands, children’s choirs, and private studio teaching. Every year our members of the Music Education Committee present education clinics at OMEA and other state and national conferences. All of these professors are passionate about the work they do as music educators.
Music Education is the largest program in the Music Department here at Wright State University. While attending Wright State University, our music majors gain valuable experiences working on the teaching staffs of area marching bands and winter drumlines, assisting with school musicals, coaching chamber ensembles at local schools, and conducting and accompanying church choirs. Graduates from our program teach in successful music programs throughout Ohio and earn graduate assistantships and fellowships at universities across the country.
This year we are very excited about all the new course offerings in our program as the university changes from quarters to semesters. Over the past three years the Music Education Committee has worked hard to redesign the offerings and take advantage of an opportunity to try some exciting new things in our program. We hope you will give us a close look as you make your decisions to pursue a career in music education.
