This fall Tyndale will officially offer a Music and Worship Arts Minor. The new minor provides students with opportunities to develop their skills and talents in music and worship. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to work or volunteer in worship ministry, or who wants to dive deeper into their passion for music!
The minor was developed by Dr. Melissa Davis, who describes the program as an “innovative and exciting Music and Worship Arts minor that seeks to equip students with the skills and tools needed for success in performance, worship leadership and music ministry.”
The wide range of courses will give students a broad understanding of music and worship arts, and also help to develop their talents in music and learn how to serve the greater community.
Students in this minor will take courses such as song-writing, worship leadership and theology, music history and theory, music across cultures, and music pedagogy. They will also receive performance training and private vocal and instrumental lessons. In addition, there are opportunities to perform both on campus and at external events such as concerts, chapels, and as soloists in ensemble settings.
Dr. Davis told me that students will leave the program equipped with skills that will help them as they serve their communities, both at home and across the globe. Students will develop the skills to work effectively and successfully in both Christian and secular communities while making “creative contributions to society at large.”
If you have an interest in and passion for music and worship arts you will benefit both personally and academically from this program. As Dr. Davis has said, “You will gain a broad understanding of music and worship arts with a wide variety of opportunities for you to explore your talents in music.”
