Choral Music Education
If you are interested in becoming a high school choir director, then Choral Music Education is the major for you. We have a small, tight-knit group of majors who are members of the collegiate Music Educators National Conference (MENC), Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA), and participate in a student chapter of American Choral Directors Association (ACDA). Majors follow a course of study which will result in their certification to teach Music K-12 in the state of Georgia; they also gain valuable experience as assistant directors of the ensembles, participating in both the administrative and musical aspects of being a director. Successful choral music education alumni are now teaching in the following counties among others: Baldwin, Bibb, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Houston, Newton, and Upson; we also have a graduate teaching at a Charlotte, NC high school. We have a Masters in Music Education program and welcome applications anytime . If you are interested in this major, please contact Dr. Jennifer Flory (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
A good way to explore this major is through High School Choral Day, a biannual event held at Georgia College. The Max Noah Singers combine with high school students and choirs to rehearse and perform a number of choral works at the end of the day. If you are interested in attending or bringing a choral group to High School Choral Day, please contact Dr. Jennifer Flory (email@example.com) for more information.
