The Music Department at Eastern Nazarene College strives to provide quality instruction and training in music theory, history, pedagogy, and performance and to help students develop skills that will enable them to be musical leaders in schools, churches, studios, performing halls, and throughout the greater music community both domestically and globally. It is also our mission to bring a culture of musical excellence to the broader campus community by providing all students an opportunity to participate in the arts through instruction, performance, and high quality musical exposure.
The Music Department offers degrees in three areas: Music/Liberal Arts, Music Performance, and Music Education. The department consists of three full-time professors, an artist-in-residence, and several adjunct instructors specializing in music education, composition, popular and world music, vocal music, and instrumental music.
Graduates of the music program have gone on to receive graduate degrees from schools like the University of Massachusetts, Penn State University, Emory University, Louisiana State University, Longy School of Music of Bard College, Boston Conservatory, New England Conservatory, Butler University, and others. Our graduates are involved in church music, musical theatre, opera, public and private schools, and higher education.
