• The Lee University School of Music exists to provide professional music instruction and mentorship in the context of a Christian liberal arts education. Its goal is to inspire and equip students to become excellent musicians, outstanding thinkers and articulate advocates for music in their diverse callings, for the sake of others, and in service to God's Kingdom.

    SCHOOL OF MUSIC STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

    To achieve its goal of inspiring students, the School of Music immerses them in the formative experience of making music with others and for others, fostering creativity; and it provides deep, engaging encounters with great music, all under the mentorship of music professionals and scholars who are committed to the mission of Lee University. To achieve its goal of equipping students, the School of Music provides one-on-one studio instruction, ample opportunities for solo and ensemble performances, and classroom instruction in music history and literature, theory and analysis, musicianship, and a host of discipline-specific subjects.

    The School of Music serves the University campus and the broader community by maintaining a variety of music ensembles that are open to interested and talented students and community members, by providing music for chapel and other worship services, and by offering frequent high-quality concerts performed by our own musicians as well as by guest artists. No matter the context, the School of Music believes that the ultimate purpose of music is to honor God, and that the appropriate response to the experience of music is gratitude and adoration for the Creator, who is the source of every good and perfect gift.
