Taylor McPherson, Trevecca’s vocal coordinator, is dedicated to offering Christ-centered vocal instruction that is informed by current vocal teaching methods. When teaching in his vocal studio, McPherson says he often talks about the Christian life and how the science and art of singing reveal the glory of Christ. To get to know him a little better and find out more about his work, we asked McPherson a few questions about Trevecca, his desire to use his gifts to serve God and some insight into the modern music industry.
