Longy’s in-person Master of Music in Music Education degree was built for experienced performers like you who want a powerful graduate studies program rooted in socially engaged and culturally responsive music education for the classroom. Graduate with your Master’s in just one year, plus we’ll prepare you for initial teaching licensure in Massachusetts public schools! This program will broaden your skillset and possibly help you secure a stable job in the public schools. The program is open to inspired artists from all musical backgrounds—classical, pop, world, folk, jazz, instrumental, vocal, conducting, and more.

The MM/ME curriculum explores the pedagogy foundational to the El Sistema teaching programs that are changing the lives of children in underserved communities through intensive music instruction. You’ll gain immediate experience, working with underserved youth in Greater Boston-area public schools and El Sistema-inspired sites.
