The music department at Great Lakes Christian College seeks to encourage the student to cultivate musical skills and talent. Students are given opportunities to understand, appreciate, and utilize a variety of musical forms in several different contexts—worship, public performance, and for private enjoyment.
The Music Major Program is designed to equip students in music and worship ministry areas for the local church, to give them experience in performance, to help them gain expertise in their primary instrument (voice, piano, or guitar), and to provide a foundation for further music study.
Graduates completing this degree will be able to:
- Organize and direct music and/or worship ministry in the church;
- Demonstrate proficiency in an area of performance or worship;
- Exhibit competency in the areas of music theory, music history, and conducting;
- Display leadership skills in developing musical talent and skills in the lives of others.
