A minor in music may be added to any non-music degree program following satisfactory completion of an audition. Music minors present a quarter recital during their fifth semester of performance study.



Piedmont International University has transformed my life and ministry for the Lord.  I chose this school for its consistent doctrinal teaching at all academic levels and for its dispensational approach to Scripture.  The faculty and staff go the extra mile to help students receive the best education possible.  If you want the best academic training for ministry, choose Piedmont!
