The Master of Music in General Music Education degree from University of Nevada, Reno is for candidates who are currently active music teachers. This degree program will help you improve your music teaching skills.


The General Music Education degrees from University of Nevada, Reno are not designed to lead to a music teaching license on their own. We offer first-time licensure coursework leading to various Nevada music licenses.  


This can be in conjunction or separate from the MM in Music Education degree. Anyone interested in first-time licensure with or without the MM in Music Education must also enroll in the Professional Certificate program offered by the College of Education and Human Development. Please contact Kate Pollard, the Coordinator of Music Education, for specific details.
