Tyndale's innovative and exciting music program provides the skills and tools needed for success in performance, music leadership and music ministry. With a diverse faculty of professional musicians, students receive world-class music education through leading-edge courses, internships, individual and group training, mentorship, as well as performance and ministry opportunities. Learning from expert practitioners, Tyndale provides a supportive community where musicians can explore their gifting while refining their craft. Combining practical studio training with theoretical knowledge, students gain exposure to a wide range of musical traditions, styles, concepts and artistic expressions through both popular music and sacred music genres. Multiple opportunities are available to perform at external concerts and services as soloists and in ensemble settings, even partnering and performing with professional musicians throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Students develop leadership skills through Tyndale's Chapel Program as they lead weekly chapel worship in our breath-taking 56-foot high chapel space with a state-of-the-art sound system. Students will also have access to professional campus recording facilities and multiple performance spaces throughout the campus.

We offer smaller classes where students receive undivided attention. The one-on-one training through applied lessons helps students develop and grow in their skill as they're mentored by professional musicians." - Dr. Melissa Davis
