Music (B.S.) — Contemporary Music Option


In addition to your study at Bryan, you will gain first-hand experience in the contemporary music industry and make vital professional connections as you study for a full semester at the CCCU (Coalition of Christian Colleges and Universities) Contemporary Music Program in Nashville, Tennessee.

All Music students are required to audition for entry into the program. During their time at Bryan, students will receive private lessons for their instrument. Students are also required to participate in a certain number of ensemble performances.

Benefits of this Path

Students in the Music program are thoroughly trained in both the theoretical and practical aspects of music–within the context of a biblical worldview– in order to use their talents for performing and teaching. This degree provides professional preparation for a career in performance, the music industry, or a music-related vocation, as well as instruction for life-long learning experiences in music.
