How does growing your skills and your faith sound?

Do you have a passion for music, as evidenced by your participation in choir, band, music ministry or theatre? Are you considering a career as a professional singer, composer, pianist, music teacher, music manager or music minister? Graduates of Taylor University’s music program go on to become leaders in all these fields and more.

You will be trained in music theory and ear training, and our instruction is based on your individual needs and is highly oriented to technology applications. As a freshman, your curriculum has introduction to music courses designed to transition you into serious music study including exposure to ideas about the performing arts and culture, Christian applications to career options and foundational materials filling in gaps that may exist in your background.

As a music major, you will receive a full hour of applied lessons each week with a professional musician who is a specialist in their area of study. After four years, you will have experience with professional faculty, excellent facilities and equipment and you will be among those who have won awards in competition and have traveled abroad to engage the world with music. You will also have the opportunity to network with alumni who are passionate about helping you grow in your skills and faith.
