Abstract (Summary)

A music educator's responsibilities include content knowledge, performance skills, historical and culture context, aesthetic valuing and social skills. Each educator uses his or her performance area as a medium through which to teach music to students. Music educators should be multifunctional. The teacher education program must provide resources and a well-designed curriculum to prepare the music educator to successfully enter beginning practice.

This research will investigate the current university curriculum in music education programs in California and Taiwan, presenting the different requirements and procedures to educate a future music teacher followed by an analysis and discussion of the value of these programs. Three universities in southern California: California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), University of Southern California (USC), Chapman University, and two universities in Taiwan: Taipei Municipal University of Education (TMUE) and Fu-Jen Catholic University will be reviewed in this study.
