Music and Worship Arts Major Overview
The Music and Worship Arts program is designed to equip the next generation of worship leaders to serve in the local church. Over the course of study, the student will gain insight into a variety of musical styles and expression used in a variety of modern worship settings, explore the use of technology in today’s church, and develop an understanding of the relational dynamics of a team. Emphasis is given to practical leadership training, providing the student with opportunities to serve on worship teams at the College and in area churches. Music and Worship Arts majors will also complete an internship in a local church, leading worship with a team and working alongside a church staff.
Music at Crown College has a long and successful heritage. Based on the philosophy of “excellence in all things,” all music is rehearsed and performed to the glory of God. The purpose of the Music Department is to prepare men and women to become music educators in public and private schools, to train up competent and effective worship leaders, and to lay a strong foundation for future musical studies.
Students receive a comprehensive musical training, gain an aesthetic sensitivity, and develop a striving toward musical excellence. Students also gain professional experience through student teaching, church music practice, student ministries, and recitals. When you join other students participating in music at Crown College, you become a member of a long tradition of musical excellence. The Music Department strives to be on the cutting edge of musical performance and musical ministry. You will find a refreshing diversity in the student body and in musical taste, continually affirmed in the process of rehearsing and performing music to the glory of God.
