Church Music

Bachelor of Arts (BA) – 4 year degree

  • Campus degree

Why choose Church Music at GBSC?

The BA degree gives you two options:

  1. Performance track
  2. Non-performance track

The Performance track is designed for the student who plans to proceed directly into a church music program, give elementary through advanced applied instruction, and/or enter a graduate program in church music. The program contains limited method courses, and thus, does not fully prepare the candidate to teach music in a Christian school.

The Non-performance track is designed to train students who plan to proceed directly into a church music program and give elementary through intermediate applied instruction. The program contains limited method courses, and thus, does not fully prepare the candidate to teach music in a Christian school.

Students went off to be a

  • church music director
  • church worship leader
  • church pianist / organist
  • song evangelist
  • graduate student
