General Information About Vanguard University of Southern California
The Department of Music seeks to provide understanding and appreciation of the creative process and historical context of music with a Christian worldview by offering opportunities for all students to create and recreate music through writing and performance, and to develop their performance skills both individually and through participating in musical ensembles. Further, the program is designed to prepare students to effectively communicate the aesthetic qualities of music from various styles and cultures to a diverse population – whether in music ministry, worship arts, performance, music industry careers, or teaching in public or private schools.
