Philosophy

At APU, musical scholarship surpasses demonstrated talent to encompass a balance of academic achievement, advanced skills, and spiritual maturity. Because all three aspects comprise the well-rounded musician, the School of Music encourages comprehensive growth. While demanding the highest standards of professionalism, the faculty mentor individuals, inspiring them to reach deeper and further than they imagined.

For the Master of Music Education candidate, that inspiration translates into innovative teaching experiences that transform music education. Music teachers with a foundation that includes theory, the latest technology, and a heightened sense of artistry can better communicate the subtle nuances of music to novice musicians.
