Certificate Programs at Tell School of Music

The Tell School of Music recognizes the importance of meeting each student’s individual career needs. While study in a specific degree area is the heart of every musician’s education, broadening the range of musical skills can often make a difference in developing a successful career in the profession.

For this reason, the Tell School of Music has developed several highly acclaimed certificate programs to augment our degree-granting programs offered to our students.

The Tell School of Music is approved to be the first and only university in the region to offer undergraduate certificates in Kodály, Technology in Music Education, and starting in 2021 Modern Band Applications.

Kodály Certificate students will study with our internationally-renowned experts in the Kodály concept of Music Education.


Technology Certificate students will study in our world-class Music Industry facilities with our renowned Industry faculty.
