Located adjacent to the Illinois Institute of Technology campus on Chicago’s south side, the VanderCook College of Music is the only music teacher training institution in the United States. VanderCook’s educational curriculum culminates in a Bachelor of Music Education degree with concentrations in choral or instrumental music. The college’s degree program includes a student teaching field experience for every undergrad. Every student is further required to participate in one of VanderCook’s large ensembles and several smaller ensembles also give performances on campus throughout the year.
vandercook is an amazing place if you are planning on being a music teacher or are a teacher going back to get your masters. the information you learn is very useful. the staff is also amazing and very knowledgeable.
