Mission Statement

The mission of the ACU Music Department is to prepare outstanding musicians and leaders in our profession, and to reflect God’s creative force and presence in our lives and art. To accomplish this mission the department has established four primary objectives:

  1. To develop and inspire students artistically as comprehensive musicians;
  2. To prepare students to teach effectively in schools and studios;
  3. To provide training for students who desire to perform professionally, or wish to utilize their music degree in the music industry or other fields such as business, music therapy, and more;
  4. To guide and encourage our students to seek ways to live a Christ-centered life and be a Christian role model within the music profession.
