Impact culture as a creative, thoughtful, highly capable musician. Discover the TWU Music program.
Music fills our world and we believe that musical and cultural literacy are critical for Christian musicians. Our Music program provides Christ-centred mentorship and exciting peer collaborations, along with abundant opportunities to hone your musical and leadership skills. Mentorship from professors will take your passion for music and help you develop your ability to impact culture as a performer, educator, creator, or scholar.

"At TWU, I learned to create music inspired by faith. Through the thoughtful instruction of my professors, I gained not only technical competence but more importantly, a deeper understanding of art and the world. Small classes fostered meaningful discussions and a desire for growth in students. I am thankful to have found an education that was both challenging and personal."
