The Division of Music has a long standing record of excellence in both the academic and performance areas of music. Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music for over 58 years, the Division has historically produced outstanding leaders and performers in a multitude of arenas in the musical world, including music performance, music education, composition, history and literature, worship arts and musical theatre. Current students carry on a tradition of excellence in the classroom, recital hall, and concert stage.
The Division of Music seeks to provide opportunities for students to gain professional competence in the art of music, integrating the highest standards of musical performance with a broad-based curriculum of scholarly studies within the framework of a strong Christian liberal arts tradition. The Division offers personalized attention in teaching and research with the goals of developing the talents and abilities of each individual student; discovering the ways in which music study leads to understanding oneself, humanity, and the world; and preparing the student for a variety of career objectives. Emphasis is placed upon performance as a means of achieving technical excellence and as the synthesis of that which is learned through study, research and analysis.
This collection of student work includes Senior Recitals, group ensembles, and other performances, as well as student created scores and research papers and presentations.
