Welcome to the Music Department

Pursue your passion for music at TFC!
The Music Department exists to prepare Christian musicians for careers in performance, teaching, church music, and various music-related vocations. Students develop and share their God-given abilities by participation in ensembles, recitals, concerts, service projects, and ministries. Through these experiences, the Music Department brings the whole person into the learning process through the integration of curricular and co-curricular activities and provides for the integration of faith and learning, together with character and intellect. This approach, along with courses in music theory, music history, performance, aural skills, music technology, the humanities, and Bible theology, gives students the skills to become highly valuable in their chosen field.
New trends in music, both within the evangelical church and in the world at large, are seen on our campus. Toccoa Falls College is a community of diverse cultures and students are encouraged to explore music’s diversity from contemporary Christian, jazz, classical, folk, gospel, opera, and world music.
