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.

Dr. Christelle Menth

Professor of Music
School of Music

I believe that faith integration begins with my own attitude toward learning about God's creation. I see God's hand reflected in everything I study. Because we are human and live in a sinful world, sometimes God's gifts become corrupted, but even when this happens I see God working through the "clay vessels" to allow his glory to shine. It has long been my motto to do all to God's glory, whether that be small and seemingly unimportant tasks or very visible works.
