Music

All Majors


Overview

The Department of Music provides professional preparation for students seeking careers in music or music-related vocations and offers instruction for students seeking life-long learning experiences in music.

One common question people ask is, "What can you do with a Music Major?" We love to answer, "Look at our graduates!"

Many are teaching music in public and private schools while others are serving churches as worship leaders or choir directors. Many are employed in the music industry; those with strong performance abilities are singing and playing all over the world. Others have exciting careers outside the music field while using their music to enrich their lives and others.

Our Commitment to You



Europe Chorale Tour
We commit to provide you with a thorough education in both the theoretical and practical aspects of music within the context of a biblical worldview. We want you to know about both the wonderful heritage of music we enjoy as well as the music of our time.

We are excited about helping you discover and develop your own special gifts and to understand how they fit into God's will for your life. And we can do that in the context of a small, caring community that has the time and interest to focus on you as a person.

We will work you hard and demand a lot–and we think you'll be happily surprised at the result. Our desire is to help you be a good and faithful steward of God's exciting gift of music.
