UMBC Partnership with BSO Academy Music Educators Track

The BSO Academy Week Music Educator Track is an excellent professional development opportunity for music educators currently teaching in schools and/or non-traditional settings, teaching artists, and/or students pursuing a career in music education.

Designed to invigorate music educators by focusing on improving musicianship, performance techniques, conducting skills, improvisation, arranging, practice techniques, and ensemble skills, participants are immersed in the world of the orchestra as you play, learn, and perform side-by-side with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

UMBC Graduate Credit

Through a unique collaboration between The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and UMBC’s Department of Music, BSO Music Educator Track participants also have the option to concurrently enroll in a graduate summer music course.

MUSIC 613 - BSO Academy for Instrumental Music Educators (3 graduate credits)

Students study, rehearse, and perform orchestral music side-by-side with the Baltimore Symphony, participate in small group sectional rehearsals led by artist faculty, and complete workshops taught by BSO musicians and UMBC music faculty in a variety of applicable topics for instrumental music educators.

To enroll in MUSC 613, participants must first be accepted into the BSO Music Educators Academy and be eligible for non-degree graduate admission to the university.

For more information regarding costs and receiving UMBC credit for the academy please visit, the BSO Academy page on the Department of Music website.
