Performing Artist and Strings Instructor
B.M. Performance (Violin) '13

The most meaningful part of my Conservatory experience was all the time that faculty invested in mentoring me, both in a professional sense and in a personal sense. They were so generous with their time, and I was able to learn so much from seeing their lives on display. The mixture of high standards and interpersonal grace that I saw in my private instructor’s life provided me with a model of how to interact with students and colleagues who may not know Christ yet. ’

B.M. Performance (Violin)

During my time at Biola, I was continually encouraged by those around me to become a better violinist. Not only this, but I had the opportunity to think through the purpose of my career in an environment that inspired me to think deeper about life. This is what undergrad should be about. ’

Nurse, Peace Corp Community Health Volunteer
B.M. Performance (Viola) '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. ’
