Learn what the Siena Effect can do for you.

Students majoring in Music Education will be able to complete their degree in four years. Very few programs are able to offer that. Here at Siena Heights, we have the small, flexible program that is able to do it.

With a theme of “Committed to Excellence,” the SHU Music Department wants its students to receive the background and experience to teach in a variety of fields, including instrumental and chorale.

And the Liberal Arts is infused in what we do in Music Education as well. You’ll get to know the faculty personally, and classes will work together to inform each other. In other words, it’s all one, big four-year classroom.

Call it harmonious. 

Music Education students at SHU are collegiate members of the National Association for Music Education, Michigan Music Educators Association, and other professional organizations appropriate to their content areas.
