Academics / Departments & Programs / Music / About Us

Music is one of God’s most precious gifts to His people. It enriches our lives, stirs our emotions, and stimulates our intellect. Music provides a unique mode of expression, understanding, and social connection not found elsewhere in culture. Music also presents opportunities for stewardship and service. As Christians, we are called to cultivate and renew this special part of God’s creation.

Here at Calvin University, the study and performance of music are important and enriching parts of our academic community. Our program invites majors, minors, and non-majors to create and explore music through ensembles, private lessons, and varied courses. Our outstanding faculty are dedicated to equipping students as listeners, performers, composers, scholars, educators, and worship leaders to serve as agents of renewal throughout the Kingdom of God.
