Contemporary Music Center

Students interested in contemporary music–as artists, in executive roles, or from a technical aspect –will discover firsthand the inside workings of the music industry. Each semester students will
create, produce, and market music as well as go on a tour to colleges around the country. Nashville provides an ideal setting for students to explore what it means to be a Christian in today's music industry.
