Abilene Christian College is very fortunate in being able to offer
a music department as strong as the very best. With the best methods
and the quality of teaching employed in this department, its
genuine merit is being rapidly recognized.
A sincere intelligent effort will be made to develop each student
into a real musician, and the noble principles and standards of music
will not be compromised.
Our courses in Piano, Voice, Harmony, Theory, Musical History,
and sight singing are as strong as the very best; and we invite the
closest investigation by all students interested in the study of music.
Only good instruments will be kept for teaching and practice.
