SUMMARY

Going to school for Music Teacher Education is not only a valuable choice, but typically a required first step for scholars seeking to begin a career as a cello teacher, an oboe teacher, or a violin teacher. In fact, music teacher education is of average popularity coming in at the 108th most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 3,264 music teacher education graduates. In-state tuition for music teacher education at private colleges is, on average, 3.7 times more pricey than their public peers.

There are 542 colleges that offer music teacher education. 542 colleges is on par with other degrees offered in the United States. If you're looking to surround yourself with other music teacher education students, consider institutions in New York which have the most undergraduates admitted to music teacher education annually. More generally, the top region to study music teacher education is in the Southeast region with Florida State University, University of Southern Mississippi, and Appalachian State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to study music teacher education is the Big Twelve Conference with Iowa State University, Kansas State University, and Baylor University representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best university for music teacher education is University of California-Los Angeles. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The overall best school might not actually be the best school for every student. There are a bunch of factors to consider when deciding on ​university. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would modify one's inclinations on which college to attend. At Authority, we weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which music teacher education college boasts the top campus, the answer is University of California-Los Angeles. If you are primarily interested in which university boasts the best campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more so we can compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the universities with the best student life and, from that list, our pick of the college with the best student life for music teacher education is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you curious why? Keep reading to find out more about Authority's top recommendations. Many of our decisions will probably shock you.

If price is a primary deciding factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about University of Rochester. University of Rochester appears to be our most expensive university for music teacher education, at least regarding out of state students. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive universities that could put the price tag of University of Rochester into perspective. For more context, you might care to know that music teacher education is the 119th most expensive program in the nation, with an average expense of $36,900. On a broader scale, the most costly state for music teacher education in the country is California with tuition and fees at the primary three universities amounting to $32,942 at California Baptist University, amounting to $41,196 at University of California-Los Angeles, and costs equalling $41,196 at University of the Pacific. Even more broadly, the most expensive region of the U.S. for music teacher education is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with University of Rochester with a cost of $55,040, Syracuse University with a cost of $50,616, and Susquehanna University with a cost of $48,560.

Our cheapest region for music teacher education is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Idaho with a cost of $4,208, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and Utah Valley University with a cost of $15,872. More optimistically, the most affordable college for music teacher education is Florida State University. Our full list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying about $9,800 for a degree in music teacher education. That cost balloons significantly to a median of $23,300 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the school representing the best value for music teacher education: University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Here you will find our comprehensive list on the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this idea is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for music teacher education majors range widely, but within two-years of completing the major students will typically earn around $46,000. There is much variation in earnings; highest paid earners can experience pay up to $90,900. Right out of university, the lowest end jobs within the music teacher education field make $23,100, which isn't that bad. The top earning grads from music teacher education studied at University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The overall diversity of music teacher education ranks near the bottom, falling in only the 13th percentile of all majors. The college with the highest composite diversity for music teacher education is University of Miami and here you can find our general list of the colleges with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Music Teacher Education sits only within the 47th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 8th percentile. White students compose the largest proportion at 81% of those studying music teacher education. Additionally, 60% of scholars seeking a music teacher education degree are women.

We have insufficient professors data for music teacher education to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we including data other than basic rankings we find that the school with the best professors for music teacher education is University of California-Los Angeles. You will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest examples of professors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for music teacher education is University of California-Los Angeles. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a detailed list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you believe that considering the higher education world with context mainly shaped by superlatives can create problems. We at Authority hope you look at some of our other pages on different colleges and read some of our helpful background pages on beneficial things to think about as your college search develops.
