University of Maine

Thoughts on University of Maine for Musical Theatre? Or is strictly more a Music Education school? Thank you.

It has a pretty strong music education program. However, do you/your child plan to live in the state of Maine after graduation? My mother-in-law is a music teacher in central Maine and unfortunately, the job market is NOT good for music teachers (or teachers in general, actually) right now in Maine. The schools tend to cycle through new teachers every couple of years (before they can qualify for tenure). This is the case in many other states.
