We believe that music, created by God and given to us as a gift, is one of the most fundamental forms of expressions available to us. As such, we believe that the study of music should be made available to everyone. Recognizing, however, that persons may wish to study music at varying academic levels, the Music Minor programme offers core courses that develop the musician’s foundational skills in music making. Through the development of these basic skills, and in conjunction with opportunities for exposure, this programme will enable students to function as supporting musicians in church, school, and the wider community.
