Joint Music Education Program
Center X partners with the UCLA Music Department to offer a California Preliminary Credential in Music Education. For more information, please contact Frank Heuser (), Associate Professor – Music Education.
The UCLA Department of Music, in conjunction with the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, offers the only music education program in the UC system. Students can earn a California Subject Matter Waiver in music and complete their teaching credential during the senior year of undergraduate studies. The program prepares future music educators to teach in traditional school music programs, cultivates dispositions that encourage innovation and change in the profession, and nurtures socially responsible practices in the classroom and community. This is the only music education program at a public university in California where it is possible to earn a teaching credential as part of a four year undergraduate degree program. Interested students should contact Frank Heuser () in the UCLA Department of Music.
