Dr. Christine Lapka is committed to guiding teacher education candidates in the areas of elementary music methods, exceptionalities in music, methods of instruction, and assessment. Before joining the faculty at the University of Central Florida, Dr. Lapka was a professor of music at Western Illinois University (WIU) with additional years in Illinois public schools in various music positions. The majority of her practical experience was in the area of elementary music education. During that time, she found her two undergraduate degrees invaluable to her teaching (Music Education and Music Therapy, WIU). Dr. Lapka completed a Master of Arts in Music Education (WIU, 1993) and a Doctorate in Music Education at the University of Illinois (2005). She received the Mary Hoffman Award of Excellence from the Illinois Music Education Association (ILMEA) in 2014.

As a leader in the area of disabilities in music, she is in demand to provide workshops about students with different abilities. Likewise, several articles on the same subject appear in state, national, and international journals of music education. The chapter, “Including Students with Disabilities in Instrumental Ensembles,” is published in Exceptional Pedagogy for Children with Exceptionalities: International Perspectives (Oxford University Press).
