Faculty Information

California Baptist University offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music for Worship Arts and Ministry and a Bachelor of Music degree with the following majors: Commercial Performance, Composition, Instrumental Performance, Music Education, Piano Performance, Studio Production, and Vocal Performance. The School of Music offers two minors (Music, and Worship Arts and Ministry), as well as seven new concentrations, which may be added to most music majors to provide students with a secondary area of specialization.

The Collinsworth School of Music at California Baptist University is committed to inspiring students to the highest standards of musical craft and personal character, preparing them for success in musical professions.

With an educational environment distinguished by vibrant, interactive teaching, a prolific performance culture (featuring over 400 concerts per year), and a strong emphasis on building personal and professional character, the School of Music at California Baptist University stands as a unique scholastic institution, dedicated to providing rigorous training in the arts to equip young musicians for successful careers as performers, composers, music educators, and worship leaders.

Furthermore, the California Baptist University School of Music believes in preparing high caliber, versatile musicians. While many institutions of higher learning center their curriculum and experiences around a limited segment of the musical sphere, California Baptist University intentionally provides hands-on training in a multitude of musical styles and genres without compromise. In addition to its comprehensive focus on Western art music, the school intentionally blends folk and jazz styles, world music, commercial music, studio and technical production, and modern and traditional church music to most effectively prepare future artists for what awaits them in the modern marketplace of professional musicians.

The Collinsworth School of Music is fully accredited by the National Association of School of Music (NASM) and is committed to the continued refinement of its educational opportunities as we strive to accomplish our mission of preparing the next generation of career musicians.
