As an established leader in online education, UF offers a uniquely engaging learning environment where students can connect with our faculty and use the latest digital tools. Music educators build skills in incorporating technology into their pedagogy that they can immediately put to work in their own practice.
Remote lessons are an increasingly important part of an educator’s responsibilities, and the UF College of the Arts has been ahead of the curve in world-class online learning, offering music programs in the virtual space since 2010. Whether you direct a band, chorus, or orchestra; teach general music; lead other types of school-wide music classes at the elementary or secondary levels; instruct private lessons; or otherwise teach and lead music in your community, the program can help you explore new career opportunities and form even greater connections to your students through music – all while earning your master’s in music education online.
Online students in the Master of Music in Music Education may take advantage of UF’s graduate research award. This award helps eligible students pursue opportunities, such as speaking at conferences or conducting fieldwork, by providing financial support for travel and other related expenses.

Creativity and collaboration are as essential to a music teacher’s toolkit as pedagogical knowledge. At UF, we’ve put a lot of thought into how we could create a program that helps teachers hone their core music education skills, while also encouraging them to inspire their classmates to think of new approaches and ideas.
If you’re curious what that looks like in practice, the best way to learn is by hearing our students share their personal experiences. Watch this video to see what they have to say about learning online at UF.
