Department of Music

CURRICULUM: The Department of Music has full membership status with the National Association of Schools of Music. After auditions and advisement, a student wishing to earn the professional Bachelor of Music degree must select one of the three degree emphases: Music Education, Worship Leadership, or Performance. The Bachelor of Science in Music with an emphasis in Recording Technology is also available. The department also offers the Bachelor of Arts in Music degree for students desiring a liberal arts (non-vocational) approach.

The Bachelor of Music in Music Education consists of 67.5 credits in music and music education courses and 34 credits in professional education courses. This degree prepares students to teach music in grades K-12 in public and private schools. Teaching certification is granted by the State of Missouri. This curriculum also meets the approval of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.

The Bachelor of Music in Worship Leadership consists of 75-77 music credits. This degree prepares students to facilitate, administrate, and design church music programs specific to the local church. This curriculum also meets the approval of the National Association of Schools of Music.

The Bachelor of Music in Performance consists of 74-75 credits in music and supportive courses. This degree prepares students to teach applied music lessons and to pursue graduate study in applied music.

The Bachelor of Science in Music with Emphasis in Recording Technology consists of 43 credits of music courses and 21 credits of recording technology courses. This degree offers an option to the student who has a strong interest in music as well as an interest in business or recording technology.

The Bachelor of Arts in Music consists of 49 credits in music courses. This degree offers an option to the student who has a strong interest in music but who does not want specific preparation for teaching music, ministry, or graduate study in applied music.  Also available is an Emphasis in Theatre that consists of an additional 24 credits of music and theatre courses.

All music majors (B.A., B.S., and B.M.) have co-curricular requirements, including recital and concert attendance and specific ensemble participation. In addition, all B.M. majors must satisfy piano proficiency requirements and perform a senior recital. These additional requirements are detailed in the Music Handbook.

FACULTY: The Music Department is served by 8 full-time and 12 part-time faculty members. Many of the music faculty perform annual recitals both in and outside of the Springfield community. They are in great demand as adjudicators, clinicians, and guest conductors in public schools, as well as in various church programs.

PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES: The four major ensembles (Marching Band, Symphonic Band, University Chorus, and University Orchestra) are open without entrance auditions to any Evangel student regardless of major. The University Chorale, Sinfonia and HeartSong are smaller, selected ensembles. The Sinfonia and HeartSong present music ministry to churches both in the Springfield area and on annual tours. The Guitar Ensemble, Opera Workshop, Men's Chorus, Women's Chamber Ensemble and Jazz Orchestra also provide specialized small ensemble performance opportunities.

The student who wishes to participate in the rich heritage of music for himself may elect to minor in music. The three minors available are Music (23 credits), Music Technology (23 credits), and Worship Leadership (26 credits). These programs provide the opportunity to develop skills needed for a rewarding vocation in music. Music minors have additional co-curricular requirements detailed in the Music Handbook.

Applied Music Courses

100/300. APPLIED MUSIC (1-4 credits each semester)

The system of numbering used in all private studio applied music courses is distinct from the system used for all other academic courses. Appropriate levels are initially established by an auditioning committee in the case of the Music major or minor and by the private applied music instructor for all other students. Subsequent applied music course levels are determined by the student's rate of progress and the recommendation of the private music teacher. The first 4 credits of applied music are counted as lower division credit; any credits beyond the first 4 credits may be counted as upper division (300-400 level) credit. Private lessons are available in the following areas:

Bassoon (BSON) Harp (HARP) String Bass (BASS)
Cello (CELO) Improv (IMPR) Trombone (TRBN)
Clarinet (CLAR) Oboe (OBOE) Trumpet (TRPT)
Euphonium (EUPH) Organ (ORGN) Tuba (TUBA)
Flute (FLUT) Percussion (PERC) Viola (VILA)
French Horn (HORN) Piano (PIAN) Violin (VILN)
Guitar (GUIT) Saxophone (SAXO) Voice (VOIC)

For each credit received, five hours of individual practice per week are expected. The Music Handbook gives additional information concerning the various levels of private study and a description of the repertoire expected at the various levels.
