Master of Music International Pedagogy (coursework and dissertation)
The Master of Music International Pedagogy is designed to prepare students to be among the most sophisticated scholars, musicians and educators. In their pursuit of excellence, students will acquire essential skills and knowledge through the analysis and application of a variety of studies. These include the basic tenets of educational psychology, philosophy, music pedagogy, as well as internationally recognised topics critically important to preparing students for further research in music. This degree utilises a cohort-based approach to develop student-centred learning environments where collaboration becomes an essential component to student success.
The course is delivered predominantly online, with two residential components to be taken before completion. It is essential that students undertaking this course have access to a community or school based choir, band, orchestra or other ensemble on a regular basis. It is each student's responsibility to arrange this.
