Arizona Christian University Music Programs are designed to identify and develop God given talents within each individual. Our Faculty and staff are committed to offer customized programs which nurture and facilitate musical creativity and spiritual growth.

What We Offer

Our goal is to offer a Biblically integrated music education that prepares students for ministry and professional occupations.  All music majors acquire core skills in music theory, ear training, basic piano, music history, music technology, and private lesson instruction. Each Semester students are required to participate in performance ensembles that might include, Praise Bands, Advance Bands, Chorale, Vocal Ensembles, Musical Theatre and the launch of the new Firestorm Pep Band and expanded jazz band.  The Music Department offers a Bachelor’s of Science in Music with numerous emphases.
