The mission of the Master of Music degree in Jazz Pedagogy is to prepare students for careers in advanced level performance, private music teaching, or entry-level jazz teaching positions in community colleges and four-year institutions of higher learning. It will also provide a foundation for further advanced graduate work at the doctoral level. The underlying philosophy is that the best teachers are also skilled performers.
