"Praise the Lord with harp: Sing unto Him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto Him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise." Psalm 33:1-3
Knowledge of God
God is the great Musician. He is the artificer of sound itself and thus the master of all musicians. He is the composer of one hundred and fifty of the world’s most famous songs. Man, if he is to fulfill his duty to image God in the world must be musical. He must understand and be able to utilize God’s audio creation that he might more brilliantly express the Word and works of God.
Knowledge of Ourselves
Through the medium of music man brings the tension and order, unity and diversity, beauty and truth of God from the mind of God’s vice-gerent (man) to the world of sound. Like the visual arts, the auditory arts are an expression of man’s love of God and thankfulness to Him.
Knowledge of the Redeemer
Christ the King of all creation. This demands that He be acknowledged as such not only in the
studies of science and the physical creation, but also in the realm of music. As Abraham Kuyper has expressed, there is no area of creation over which Christ does not rightly claim, “Mine!” So too, at CCA we seek to bring every area of life under the godly rule of King Jesus. Music, as but one other of the many languages that God has created, must be mastered if service to God is to be faithfully and completely rendered. In short, man must learn music in order to express God’s thoughts after Him more brilliantly.
