Graduate Music Education

Distance Learning:

Each semester, fall and spring, a graduate music education course is offered with a variety of sites working as one classroom through live, interactive video-conferencing technology. Students are able to make presentations, discuss, and work as one group with sight and sound in tact. The sites typically used are the KU campus, Leavenworth Middle School, Garden City Community College, Pratt Community College, and the Edwards campus. Other sites are available with sufficient time for arrangements. Or availability can occur from virtually any computer anywhere. Please contact me for more information.


There are four graduate music education courses that are offered over a two-year period through the distance sites.
