Rowan University prepares outstanding music educators through a rigorous education curriculum and in-depth performance studies with outstanding musicians. Students in the program begin observing and working in the public schools frequently in their sophomore year. The program culminates with outstanding educators and musicians completing a student teaching experience and confidently beginning their teaching careers. Rowan enjoys a high placement rate in New Jersey elementary and high schools, although alumni of the program teach throughout the nation and find success in graduate study as well.
The music education program is a supportive and active learning community. Curricular course study is supplemented with active student organizations. Rowan has a student chapter of the National Assocaiation for Music Education (formerly MENC). The Rowan NAfME chapter, advised by Dr. Dammers, sponsors frequent clinics, service projects, convention trips, as well as leadership and networking opportunities for its members. Rowan University also has a chapter of future choral directors, called ACDA (American Choral Directors Association). This is a very active and close-knit group whose passion is to make a difference in the lives of singers. Dr. Thomas is the faculty advisor.
