Purpose and Objectives

The music curriculum is designed to provide the qualified Christian student with a broad foundation of music theory, music history, church music, performance and pedagogy, all presented from a biblically-based philosophy of music. The primary concern is to prepare students for careers and ministries as performers and church musicians in which they will reflect biblical truth.


  1. The student will demonstrate college level proficiency in musicianship, knowledge, and understanding relating to our musical hertiage.
  2. The student will demonstrate effective musical leadership for the local church.
  3. The student will demonstrate professional skills needed by the church musician, or music teacher.
  4. The student will demonstrate skills and knowledge that will enable him / her to pursue graduate study or a career in performing / teaching.
