Alumni Success | B.M. in Music Performance

Nurse, Peace Corp Community Health Volunteer
Performance (Viola) '10, B.M. and Nursing, B.S. '10

Attending Biola as both a nursing and music performance student allowed me to glean from a host of professors and peers that have lived out their faith in a variety of professions. The personal and spiritual growth that I experienced from my time at Biola has empowered me to share Christ’s love with others regardless of whether I am giving medications to a patient in the ER, playing my viola in church or assisting in compiling the district reports of teenage pregnancy and newly acquired HIV infections in an African village. ’

International Opera Singer, Soprano
Performance (Voice), B.M. '04

Biola gave me incredible opportunities to perform lead solo roles while I was a student, something that became a huge advantage to me when I went on to study in London. I also had close working relationships with all the members of the staff and production team and first-hand (sometimes hands-on!) knowledge of all the elements of being a part of a wonderful show. Biola helped me begin to build a strong foundation of teamwork, respect, professionalism and the sheer joy of bringing music alive on-stage.’

Performing and Recording Percussionist, Music Educator
Performance (Drums and Percussion), B.M. '14

Biola's gifted professors and loving community met me where I was at, helped to foster my growth, and inspired me to become the best musician I could be. Numerous ensembles and performance opportunities provided me with priceless experiences to work with many other musicians in different settings that prepared me for the professional world. After graduation I have been blessed to continue my relationship with the people I met at Biola (both faculty and students) who continually support me and show me what it means to truly trust God with my music career. ’

Performance (Piano) and Music Education, B.M. '94

I would like to thank the music department (now conservatory) as a whole for your commitment to providing an outstanding music education integrated with Christian world view for students such as I was. I know God led me to attend Biola...and my time spent there greatly affected the direction of my life. ’
