The Music Education Project

As of now, we are preparing to teach in-person in Fall 2020. We are also prepared to teach online for the first few weeks of the fall semester or fully online for the entire fall semester if applicable. You will receive updates in the second week of August 2020.

Pacific University's Music Education Project is an after-school music education program that offers high-quality, yet affordable, instruction to students ages 5 to 18 while at the same time provides an opportunity for undergraduate students who are planning to become music teachers to gain teaching skills under close supervision under university faculty.

This program offers private lessons and learning opportunities in small and large ensembles on all string instruments (violin, viola, cello, double bass), wind instruments, brass instruments, percussion, and instruction in voice and choir.

The Music Education Project also offers instruction in music theory and solfege, music appreciation, and chamber ensembles. Teachers in the program are trained music education undergraduate students who work under the close supervision of highly-qualified and experienced music faculty.
