Chair, Division of Music
Thanks for your interest in Music At BJU. If you’re like most who’ve applied to study music here, you’ve already invested countless hours in building your musicianship and performance skills, and now you’re looking for expert, caring faculty, excellent facilities, and challenging performance opportunities as you chart your path forward to graduate school or a career. You’ll certainly find all that at BJU, but maybe you’re looking for even more.
Perhaps, as one who bears the image of a creative, musical God, you sense a calling to cultivate and steward this gift for a cause greater than yourself. At BJU, we’re committed to empowering you to become everything God intended you to be as you yield your gifts and skills to His redemptive plan. And we’re dedicated to preparing you to wield those gifts in ways that will impact lives for eternity. We call this redemptive artistry – it’s musicianship on a mission. Come join us!
Music is a dual-admission program. Students must be accepted to both BJU and the Division of Music in order to major or minor in music. We will begin accepting music applications for 2021-2022 on September 1, 2020. The deadline for scholarship consideration has been extended to February 15, 2021. We will continue to accept applications after this date, but those desiring to be considered for music scholarships should submit their applications by February 15.
Step 1: Apply for admission to BJU.
Step 2: Complete the Online Music Application and submit audition videos through getacceptd.com. This is required for new students who plan to major or minor in music and also serves as the initial application for music merit scholarship consideration for all students.
Step 3: Based on a review of the Online Music Application and audition videos, select applicants will be invited to schedule an on-campus scholarship audition in the spring.
