The Performance emphasis prepares students for careers in performance, teaching, or advanced study in piano, voice, or another instrument. The program includes a breadth and depth of music studies to ensure a thorough foundation.
Music, the art of organizing sound in time, is a universal language given to us by God that expresses thoughts and emotions where words cannot. The faculty of the School of Music at The Master’s University believes in the vital role and purpose of this gift and is privileged to train students to use their musical abilities to the glory of God by developing wisdom, establishing convictions and producing leaders.
