Passionately Pursuing Excellence to the Glory of God


Studying music requires passion, because in order to be successful in music, you have to be disciplined; you’ll need to be committed to practice and study your craft, focused on performance excellence, and be willing to teach others to do the same. In CCU’s School of music, we structure our programs to nurture your musical gifts and talents in a Christ-centered environment so that you can excel in the performing arts — and do so for Christ.

Pursuing excellence

As believers, we have a higher calling toward excellence as we develop our gifts and talents in music not only for the enjoyment of our audiences, but also as an offering before the Lord. Just as our Creator God does all things well, we are created in His image to pursue excellence in all that we are called to do.

To the Glory of God

In the same way that J.S. Bach signed his musical compositions with Soli Deo Gloria (to the glory of God alone), the CCU School of Music is committed to integrating our Christian faith into every aspect of studying music and the performing arts.

Our commitment to both the spiritual and musical development of our students offers a unique experience among Colorado’s schools. We believe that by remaining Christ-centered, we develop not only skilled musicians, but also leaders who are prepared for a life of service to the Lord through the arts.

Performing Arts

The School of Music at Colorado Christian University currently offers six music majors: composition, education, general music, music production and engineering, performance, and worship arts; as well as minors in music, music theatre, and theatre. There are many ensembles in the university that support the different majors.

The School of Music program is geared to support these Strategic Priorities of the University; Impact our culture for Christ; and Teach Students How to Think For Themselves.
