PhD Programs in Education Teaching Music Education

Considered a comprehensive area of study, music education may be aimed towards preparing educators to effectively teach musical concepts to students. Some topics that may be covered include how to teach students to recognize, read and compose music, in addition to performance training. 

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
