The department of music facilitates an environment of musical creativity, expressive performance and contextualized music education with a Christ-centered and Spirit-empowered perspective and worldview.

Our degrees foster hands-on experiences and valuable skills, giving students a competitive edge as they go out into the marketplace.


The Vanguard Blessing

The Vanguard Blessing unites generations of music students, faculty, and staff. Featuring an array of music alumni (dating back to the c/o 1968) and highlighting siblings, spouses, and legacy families, we stand together to declare God's promises and faithfulness and sing a blessing over the Vanguard community for years to come!

Professional DevelopmentEvery year, we sponsor students to attend professional conferences like the California All-State Music Education Conference and National Association of Music Merchants Show (NAMM). Additionally, our students actively participate in collegiate chapters of professional associations.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENTFrom performing at senior living facilities, to hosting festivals for school partners, to leading worship at churches, we are committed to bringing music to under-served populations and our surrounding community.

InternshipsAfter successful completion of foundational music courses, students are expected to complete two semesters of internships. Recent internship placements have included concert promotion, booking, artist management, private teaching studio, and field work with a master teacher.
