Applied Music Studies

"Music is the universal language of mankind."
  - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, American poet (1807-1882)

The Applied Music Studies Emphasis is an opportunity for students from any major or academic discipline to grow in stewardship of God-given gifts and talents. This Cross-Disciplinary Study is designed to develop skill and talent through applied lessons and participation in major University ensembles – choral or instrumental. Emphasis is placed on developing strong fundamentals of tone production and technique as well as improving musical performance and artistry. Even if you don't intend to make music the key focus of your career, the Applied Music Studies emphasis provides you with involvement opportunities and experience in music history and music-making.

Patrick Meese

Worship Arts
Class of 2005

I am currently a part-time musician and a part-time employee at Starbucks. After graduation from CCU I was able to take my newly learned skills and invest more time into my music. I formed a rock group called Meese and we have had a very exciting year and a half since I left school. The future of the band looks very bright and I owe much of it to the professors at CCU who were able to invest extraordinary amounts of time into teaching me the fundamentals of music.
