Graduate Assistantships

A limited number of Teaching Fellowships (TF) and Teaching Assistantships (TA) awards are available to students each year.  Teaching Fellowships are for those who instruct classes and serve as the primary instructor.  Such courses may include teaching elementary methods classes for non-majors, introductory music education classes, student teaching supervision, or instrumental technique classes (brass and woodwind).  Teaching Assistant awards may vary from 10-20 hours of work per week.  Positions may include serving as a research assistant, working with the
Early Childhood Music Program, working with the New Horizons Senior Band, or overseeing the Music Education Resource Room.
