Union University is an institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. All degree programs in music have been evaluated and approved by NASM, the only accrediting organization for schools of music in the nation.

Whatever the genre, whether it be solo, opera, or ensemble, Union’s faculty will challenge you as a performer. Union’s ensembles are top-notch in every way and reflect the extraordinary variety and color that ensemble music offers. Union offers jazz ensembles, guitar ensembles, small selective choral units as well as large choirs that perform masterworks with orchestra. Ensemble life at Union is rich and full.

Imagine the chance to study with:

  • Great performing teachers of voice, piano, and instrumental music;
  • Authoritative lecturers in music history, music theory, and music technology;
  • A conductor whose choirs have been selected to perform at major venues, including state and regional ACDA and MENC Conventions;
  • A celebrated organist whose compositions and arrangements have been widely published for many years;
  • A pianist who was selected as Tennessee’s Musician of the Year in 2002;
  • An elementary music specialist who has long been recognized as an authoritative teacher and writer in applications of Orff and Kodaly techniques for both school and church music;
  • An instrumental coordinator/performer who is an authority on clarinet mouthpiece design and tone;
  • Celebrated faculty members who teach out of Christian calling, yet expect your best.

Union is very clear about its mission and its uniqueness. Faith, values, and Christian worldview are important to every facet of life at Union. Faculty, programs, and students are gathered uniquely around a Christian mission of wholesomeness and promise. Come share it with us!
