Step into the spotlight. Thomas Nelson’s music program caters to vocalists and instrumentalists with courses in applied music and music theory.
The applied music courses offer private instruction in voice, piano, strings, woodwinds and other instruments. Thomas Nelson’s Concert Choir presents classical, jazz, spirituals and musical theatre selections accompanied by our Steinway & Sons grand piano. You can also hone your craft with a role in one of Thomas Nelson’s theatrical productions. The College presents a musical, play and an operetta every year.
The best part of the program is, without question, the instructors. Every professor I have worked with has been not only knowledgeable, but passionate, especially the music professors. They love music and want to share it with their students. They encourage us to do well, and when we do, they are full of praise.
After earning an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts with specialization in Music, embark on a career in performance or support music instruction for children. Also, consider pursuing baccalaureate studies in music, music technology, music business or music education.
