Each year, Kansas State University hosts the FUTURE MUSIC EDUCATOR’S DAY. The event allows high school students to experience a “Day-in-the-life-of” a music education student. Rather than being specifically a recruiting activity for the university, Future Music Educator’s Day is an attempt to expose potential music students to a career in music and education. It is more of recruitment for the profession than for any one institution.

Built in to their day’s schedule are the following meetings and presentations:

  • Meeting with faculty and student mentors
  • Visit of a Music Education class session
  • Visit of sessions on Instrumental, Choral, String, or Jazz Education
  • Observe a Band, Orchestra, or Choral rehearsal
  • Sessions on Music Education
    • So you want to be a music teacher
    • Preparing to be a music major in college
