Pathways to Licensure
Please note: this ASPA has elected to become inactive as of 2013. Over time the functions of this ASPA and the examination of issues relating to licensure have been taken up within the contextual areas of the other ASPAs. Please visit any of the other ASPAs for further information.
The purpose of the Pathways to Licensure ASPA is to gather data and provide a forum for discussing issues related to the multiple pathways to licensure in music education.
