College Division Description

The College Division of the Falls Baptist Music School is open to all students enrolled in Baptist College of Ministry. The Music School currently offers instruction for Piano, String, Wind, and Brass instrumentalists.


WHAT IS OFFERED TO BCM STUDENTS?

Music Degree Students

Along with six other degrees, Baptist College of Ministry offers both a music major and a music minor. The music degree will equip students with vision, burden, and tools to fulfill the Great Commission through local church ministry. This degree is designed to bring each student to a high level of musical proficiency. Students choose an emphasis in Pedagogy, Composition and Arranging, or Church Leadership.

Non-Music Degree Students

Students pursuing other degrees are also encouraged to get involved in the Music School by enrolling in music lessons. Every student enrolled in music lessons also participates in at least one instrumental group ranging from a small ensemble to our 40-member symphony orchestra. We believe that each aspect of musical training has a vital role in a student's development spiritually, practically, and in his character.
