You can tailor the program to your unique interests by adding an emphasis in composition, music production and engineering, or performance.

Music In the Christian University

The focus of CCU's School of Music is to teach you how to impact your culture for Christ, as well as how to honor Him and to share His love on campus and around the world, using excellence in music to do so. Integrated offerings combine classical, jazz, contemporary, and world music with a progressive and distinctly Christian worldview to develop students who are leaders – both in the world and in the Church. As a Music major, you'll receive personal attention by an exceptional, creative, and caring faculty who are themselves active performers and clinicians who desire to not only teach but to also mentor students. Opportunities include national tours for major ensembles, and an on-campus recording studio.

Prospective students who are planning to major or minor in music are required to audition for participation in most ensembles and for consideration for music scholarships.

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.
