Bryon Black ’11 (High School Choir Director)
AU's Music Ed Department is definitely one like no other. As as a student, I was presented with multiple opportunities and experiences to strengthen my musical skills in a variety of ways. I received plenty of individual attention in classes to develop these skills. The professors train students based on all current and relevant information from ODE and music-based research to give them the tools to be successfully prepared in multiple music teaching situations. After graduating mid-year, I was instantly able to receive a wonderful teaching job. My success in the many things I do now is only thanks to the training I received from a quality music education department.
