Trevecca’s liberal arts education will prepare you to influence the world around you, and help you grow intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically, and spiritually. For those who want to serve in the church, we also offer targeted training in our praise and worship certificate program.

The benefits of studying music at Trevecca:

  • The professor teaching your class knows music. Trevecca’s music faculty touts professional musicians, music industry pros, and top-notch engineers, producers and teachers.
  • Incredible opportunities in Music City and on campus. From singing background vocals with LeAnn Rimes and Jennifer Nettles on national television to leading worship services on campus and access to a professional studio and equipment, Trevecca students have plenty of opportunities to put what they’re learning into practice. 
  • Your professors have time for you. Our music faculty members have years of industry experience and professional training, but they’ll also serve as your mentors. Your professors will encourage, challenge, and advise you as you seek to faithfully follow where God leads. 
  • Internships that really matter. You can expect hands-on, on-site training with industry professionals throughout Music City, U.S.A.
  • You’ll experience authentic Christian community. Studying at Trevecca isn’t just about getting a degree; it’s about helping you to understand what it means to live for Christ in every area of your life. 

Trevecca's new music building

Trevecca’s new music building will include expanded music classrooms and practice spaces, as well as faculty offices. In addition, the new space is also expected to house a “black box” theater. This simple, unadorned performance space will offer great flexibility in staging a large variety of productions or performances. The building will also house practice spaces for choral groups, instrumental ensembles and bands.
