Welcome to the Pfeiffer University Music Department
Preparing 21st century leaders in music and worship through an educational experience that unites the high artistic standards of a professional program with the intellectual rigors and academic breadth of a liberal arts education.
MUSIC AND WORSHIP
Beginning Academic Year 2014-2015
Pfeiffer University offers a bachelor of arts degree program in music and worship and a minor in music. Students may also seek certification in music ministry in The United Methodist Church.
· The Music and Worship program supports current trends in music and worship leadership and the need for trained professionals through comprehensive and cross disciplinary training in required knowledge and skills. The curriculum aligns with Pfeiffer’s emphasis on Christian and community service and leadership.
· Courses assist students in developing a strong base in music theory, music history and musicianship. Students receive individual instruction in applied music (voice, piano, organ, guitar, electric bass, strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion).
· Music and non-music majors have opportunities to perform with Pfeiffer ensembles, which are open to all students by audition. These include concert choir, gospel choir, concert band, jazz ensemble, pep band, praise band, handbell choir, guitar ensemble and chamber music groups. Many activities of the music program are open to non-music majors who wish to perform with vocal or instrumental groups. Certain other music courses are available to non-music majors.
