Contemporary Christian Music Minor (A)
Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Psalm 33:3
The successful modern music ministry requires well-rounded musicians with a broad skill-set, no longer limited to basic performance ability. The Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) minor at Concordia University affords students the opportunity to hone the necessarily musical skills to thrive in a modern worship setting. With a performance emphasis in either piano or guitar and the inclusion of voice lessons, the CCM minor student will gain the necessary tools to be a leader in any context. Elective courses in this minor allow the student to tailor her experience to her individual needs, and participation in the CUAA Worship Arts Ensembles gives a practical, real-world outlet for creative expression and worship. The CCM minor does not lead to a rostered position in the LCMS.
