The Herbert W. Armstrong College music department provides voice and instrumental training, and hosts events open to the public. Students participate in music appreciation, musicianship, studio voice and studio piano classes, as well as perform in recitals and other productions.

The department hosts regular concerts and student and faculty recitals that are free and open to the public. It also helps coordinate occasional master classes held in conjunction with the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation performing arts series at Armstrong Auditorium. Music students, along with all other students, serve as ushers and other staff for Armstrong concerts.

The music department organized a college ensemble called the Young Ambassadors, which performed with baritone Jubilant Skyes, sang and danced aboard a float in Edmond’s LibertyFest parade, sang the state song as part of Gov. Mary Fallin’s inauguration, and sang the national anthem for the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team. The ensemble was replaced by the Armstrong Youth Chorus, which includes students from the college and from its sister grade school, Imperial Academy. Students from the two schools also play in the Armstrong Youth Orchestra. Armstrong and Imperial students join members of the local church congregation for special music theater productions.
