Music Credential at CSUF

Students intending to teach music in the California public schools must demonstrate subject-matter competence prior to admission to the Single-Subject Credential program. This may be done either

(a) by completing the coursework for the Subject Matter Preparation Program (SMPP) or

(b) by passing subject-matter tests specified by the State of California and administered by the Educational Testing Service.

In either case, an interview and competence examination administered by the Music Department must be passed prior to enrolling in the Single-Subject Credential Program in Music (which includes student teaching)

Vocal competence may be shown either by successful audition or completion of Music 283 (voice class) with a minimum grade of “B.” Piano competence may be shown by either successful audition or completion of Music 282B with a minimum grade of “B.”

The prospective student must pass the CBEST (California Basic Education Skills Test) as well as an assessment interview with the Music Education faculty.
