What is a good way to balance graduate studies and work

Updated Albertville, Alabama

After obtaining my Bachelors degree in music education I plan on moving on shortly after to pursue my Masters and eventually my Doctorates in music education. In order to qualify for the Doctoral program you must have three years of teaching experience. How should I balance my studies and teaching. #music #balancec #graduate-school #grad-school #education #teaching #music-education

I have not personally pursued a higher level degree in music, but I have had friends (including my chorus teacher in high school) who found Master's programs that were designed for people actively working at the same time.

I would also say just because they desire you to have three years working experience, that doesn't mean it is a complete deal breaker to get in. Don't let that prevent you from trying to make it work.
