The Crown Music Conservatory
The mission of the Music Conservatory is to build students’ biblical convictions as to what constitutes Christ-honoring music, to develop and refine the God-given musical abilities of students, and to provide opportunities to employ both their convictions and abilities, all to the glory of God.
In 2006, the Crown Music Conservatory was founded on the campus of The Crown College of the Bible. Students studying in the Music Ministry program and in the Secondary Education program (music education proficiency) have the opportunity to develop their personal musical skills, whether vocal or instrumental, while learning effective methods of teaching students of varying ages and skill levels.
In addition to this emphasis on the development of personal skill and pedagogical methods, all Conservatory students are led to build a theology of music, based not on personal style or preference, but on the unchanging principles of God’s Word.
