The design of our courses is based on the principles of the Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of education. We cultivate young music talents for the church, so that students can perform music ministry in the church after graduation, such as performance, violin, lead singer, teaching, and organize various music worship groups to prepare the congregation for enrichment in church worship through music. In the courses, students are equipped with music training including theory/ history, performing arts, and pedagogue.
