The Bachelor of Music in Music Education with an emphasis in Instrumental Music

Shorter offers an instrumental emphasis to the Music Education degree. This is an important part of our music department and we are excited about applying our excellent tradition in training music teachers to the band world. This degree will lead to the Georgia Music Certification and is excellent training for a career as a band director. Shorter will be accepting new students for this program taught by professional musician-teachers.

We have scholarships to award prospective band directors who want to pursue an instrumental music education degree, and we also have band scholarships available for non-music majors who join the Shorter University Marching Hawks.

We offer students the opportunity of seeing up close how to build a band program from the ground up. If you would like additional information regarding our program and scholarship availability, please contact Ms. Beverly Harper at
