Emmanuel College is dedicated to intellectual, physical and spiritual growth within the context of a liberal arts education and an environment of Christian concern. We believe God is the personal Creator and Ruler of all time, space and matter, and a true understanding of all things must involve knowledge of His revealed purposes. We further believe the fullest information about God comes from the person of Jesus Christ and the relation of His redemptive works as recorded in the Holy Bible through inspiration of the Holy Spirit. All creation derives value and significance from God revealed in Jesus Christ. Christians are able to live as redeemed, regenerated and cleansed members of society through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
We believe education based on these principles is the best possible method of preparing students for and involving them in lasting service to God and others – service noted for integrity, intelligence and devotion. We further believe a college experience in a Christian environment will enable students to develop lifelong spiritual and social values. We believe all truth is God’s truth, and opportunities should be provided students to integrate faith and learning and synthesize their understanding of God’s purpose in Christ with one’s view of the worth of persons and worth of the scientific method in improving life.

The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music provides a comprehensive study in music, as well as 19-20 semester hour electives that can be taken in a different discipline(s).

The keyboard proficiency examination is a part of a continuing effort to prepare our graduates for their respective careers in the best and most thorough manner possible. It is included in the program because the development of basic keyboard skills is considered essential to success in all musical careers. Students should be able to demonstrate facility in the following areas: sight-reading, technique (scales, arpeggios & chord progressions), transposition, harmonization of a melody and score reading. The music faculty recommends that the keyboard proficiency exam be taken after four semesters of piano study. Satisfactory completion of this examination is required for graduation.
ADDITIONAL MUSIC REQUIREMENTS
MU 099 (Seminar) must be taken concurrently with every applied music course. Music Seminar, recital attendance, and recital performance are required of all Music majors. The number of seminars and recitals is determined by the Music faculty with regard to the number or required events and Cultural Awareness Concerts scheduled for the semester.
