Division of Music General Information

The Division of Music offers a Bachelor of Science degree within a Liberal Arts setting with majors in Church Music, Music Business, Music Education, and Music (Liberal Arts). Career and service opportunities in music include serving in various aspects of music ministry, the music industry, teaching in public and private schools and colleges which offer programs in vocal or instrumental music, and professional singing and playing in symphonies, opera, orchestras, and church musician positions.

The division's educational philosophy is based on the premise that a student must experience the performing of music. Therefore, each major program offers opportunities to perform with either vocal or instrumental groups on campus in addition to the basic core of music courses. Performing ensembles in the Division of Music are Ambassadors, Choral Union, Covenant Choir, Madrigalians, Treble Tones, Trevecca Master Chorale, Trevecca Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, Commercial Guitar Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Musical Theatre Ensemble, Opera Workshop, Brass Quintet, Woodwind Quintet , and University Handbell Choir.

Students who are not music majors may elect courses in music, perform in ensembles, or study applied music in order to broaden and enrich their appreciation of the fine arts.

Trevecca Nazarene University is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.

Mission Statement

The Division of Music seeks to educate the prospective professional and practitioner in the areas of music industry, music education, church music, and classic music training for a life of leadership and service.

The Division of Music provides opportunity for the Trevecca Nazarene University community to broaden their appreciation and understanding of music. The division provides the general education student with instructional courses in music performance and music appreciation through which the aesthetic, intellectual, and creative needs in the area of music can be effectively satisfied.

Learning Outcomes

Graduates with a Music major will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a functional knowledge of the language and grammar of music.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to hear, identify, and relate aesthetically the elements of music: rhythm, melody, harmony, and structure.
  3. Have developed an understanding of the methods by which music is composed.
  4. Have developed an acquaintance with a wide selection of music literature.
  5. Have developed the ability to discriminate in music.

Division Regulations

Students choosing to major in music should be prepared to sing or play representative works from their repertoire for placement into class or private instruction. Additional placement procedures include proficiency examinations in music theory (written and aural) and functional keyboard skills. Incoming students desiring to major in music education, church music, or music (liberal arts) will be required to take a piano placement test. The student will be placed in the appropriate Class Piano course. Based on the placement, the class piano courses not required will be waived.

Students pursuing the Music Education major must make formal application to the Teacher Education Program as is outlined in the School of Education teacher education guidelines.

Applied Study

Applied study is required of all music majors.

Any student desiring applied study must audition for placement. To register for applied study, the student must have the instructor's approval.

Minimum requirements differ according to each degree program as follows:

Music Business

4 - 8 credit hours of Lower Division applied study over 4 semesters and must complete at least two consecutive semesters in the same applied area of study.

Music Education

4 - 8 credit hours of Lower Division applied study over 4 semesters and 4 - 6 credit hours of Upper Division applied study over 3 semesters.

Church Music/Music (Liberal Arts)

4 - 8 credit hours of Lower Division applied study over 4 semesters and 5 - 8 credit hours of Upper Division study over 4 semesters. 2 credit hours must be in the semester of Senior Recital.

Students enrolled in degree programs requiring a Senior Recital must first pass an applied examination at the end of their 4th semester to be admitted into Upper Division and must pass a Senior Recital Jury 4 weeks prior to Senior Recital to be able to present their recital.

Students may register for their applied lessons as follows:

One 30-minute lesson requires a minimum of 5 hours outside practice weekly for Lower Division study and 6 hours outside practice weekly for Upper Division study.

Music Majors may count 1 credit hour of class instruction in their principal applied area toward graduation requirements.

Ensembles

Any student may apply for membership in one or more of the divisional ensembles which provide opportunity for a variety of musical experiences through performances. Music majors and minors are required to participate in an appropriate ensemble each semester they are enrolled in applied study; i.e., vocal and keyboard students enroll in Choral Union; orchestral students enroll in Wind Ensemble; guitar students enroll in Guitar Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, or Commercial Guitar Ensemble (2 credit hours minimum of Commercial Guitar Ensemble and 2 credit hours minimum of Guitar Ensemble). Additional required ensembles hours are at the student's discretion.
