Foundations of Music Education is an introductory course in the music education program. It provides a broad overview of the field of music education, addressing the historical development of music education in the United States as well as current approaches and issues in the field. The course is framed by three guiding questions: What is the purpose of music education?; How can students best explore music?; and How can teachers best create music learning experiences for their students? In addition, two projects that extend throughout the music education major are introduced: a personal philosophy of music education, and a digital portfolio.
