The string pedagogy minor is for students who do not want to major in music, but would still like to study how to inspire students to love music while impacting their lives for God.
String Pedagogy minors take approximately 22 credits of courses. In addition to taking standard music courses such as Harmony 1, Basic Music Literature and Aural Skills, pedagogy students also take String Pedagogy 1 and 2, String Literature, and String Practicum.
Minors also gain two years of practical experience by being paid to teach in the prep school. While teaching in the prep school, students not only have the practical experience of teaching private lesson to various levels of students, they also learn how to successfully a variety of group classes.
For more information, please be sure to also check out the catalog, the prospective musicians section, the music handbook, and the performing groups.
