Doctor of Musical Arts in Church Music

The D.M.A. is intended principally for students who desire to have a strong performance component along with their studies in Church Music. These students will not have a minor area but will take applied lessons and give two recitals, with a supporting document accompanying the second recital.

The D.M.A. information packet details degree entrance and completion requirements, curriculum and course descriptions, student expectations, audition requirements, and financial resources.  If, after viewing our website, you have questions or need additional information, please contact Dr. Monique Ingalls at
