Sharpen Your Craft; Engage Your Faith
As a student in Taylor’s Department of Music, Theatre & Dance, you’ll gain the technical background—in music theory, acting methods, dance techniques—to take your existing gifts and skills to the next level.
Our programs emphasize active learning. You won’t just sit and study methods and theories—you’ll put them into action. Through ensemble rehearsals, concerts, theatrical productions, student recitals, and fully staged musicals and operas, our students take their learning from the desk to the stage.
