Education for pre-service teachers, is to engage in fieldwork studies with certified teaching
professionals. Music Education Field Experience II is a mandatory fieldwork experience for music

beginning teaching exploration with a cooperating teacher. Twenty hours of observation and

journal reflective of teaching and learning strategies observed and practiced, interviews
with faculty, and conclusions drawn upon the fieldwork experience are essential components of
the course. Students enrolled in this course will also meet once per week with the faculty of
