Music Education Day

8 a.m. - 7 p.m. November 16, 2023


Open to high school students (freshman through seniors) who think they might be interested in becoming a music teacher. This is a career exploration day for anyone who wants to see if music education is right for them and enjoy a day of fun on the UWSP campus. 

The event is from 8 AM to 7 PM, but students are welcome to attend for only part of the day if needed. We will take students out to lunch on campus, they can attend a music education class, sit in on choir, band, or orchestra, and can even stay for a fun event at the end of the day sponsored by our music service fraternities and social groups. 

Please send this information to any students you think would like to join us. Also, please reply and let us know if there are any students you teach who you think might make great future music teachers, so we can send them more information directly. 

Register here.

 The Noel Fine Arts Center is building 9 on the campus map.
