Dr. Julie Beauregard is a general music education specialist. She instructs coursework with undergraduates and graduates at Oregon State University that focuses on multiple pedagogies and methodologies. Her work reflects diverse expertise in areas such as world music, students with special needs, ethnography, pre-service music teacher preparation, embodied knowledge, music in early childhood, educational philosophy, and social justice in the educational context.

She is currently participating in the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) national standards revision process as a member of the pre-kindergarten through second grade subcommittee writing team.
