About Music at PLNU
Studying music is the perfect way to foster individual and corporate growth. In the Department of Music, you'll pursue musical excellence within a community of grace. We develop leaders in education, composition, performance, and worship.
Music majors have opportunities to travel and perform around the United States and the world. But even performing on your own campus is world-class, as the highly sought-after Crill Hall has been noted as one of the finest performance halls in San Diego.
We offer a full range of performing ensembles, including Choral Union, Concert Choir, Point Loma Singers, Chorale, Vocal Jazz Ensemble, String Quartet, ConcertBand, Handbell Choir, Jazz Band, and Chamber Orchestra. Each music major participates in at least one of these groups.
Private Music Lessons
Music majors and music scholarship holders take private music lessons in their primary performance area from our music department professors or one of our respected adjunct instructors. Non-music majors who do not hold scholarship awards in music may also take music lessons from our instructors, subject to available studio space and with the approval of the instructor. The private music lesson fee, which music scholarship awards are intended in part to cover, are currently $395/semester for 1 unit (one 30-minute lesson per week) or $790/semester for 2 units (one 1-hour lesson per week). A practice room fee of $25 is assessed for 1 unit (30 minutes/day practice time), $50 for 2 units (1 hour/day practice time).
