Assistant Professor of Church Music
Scott Aniol is an author, speaker, and teacher of worship, church music philosophy, culture, and aesthetics. In addition to teaching courses in worship and philosophy in the School of Church Music at Southwestern Seminary, Scott regularly lectures around the country in churches, conferences, colleges, and seminaries. Recent speaking engagements include the Great Lakes Conference on Theology, the Conference on the Church for God’s Glory, and the Preserving the Truth Conference. He has also lectured in conferences and seminaries in Australia and Brazil.
Scott is the author of two books, Worship in Song: a Biblical Approach to Music and Worship (BMH Books, 2009) and Sound Worship: a Guide to Making Musical Choices in a Noisy World (Religious Affections Ministries, 2010) as well as dozens of articles.
Scott is also the Managing Editor of Artistic Theologian, a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal of worship and ministry arts published by the School of Church Music at Southwestern.
Scott has a burden that churches allow the Bible to regulate their worship instead of the prevailing culture. This requires that pastors and church musicians have a thorough understanding about what Scripture teaches regarding worship, beauty, and culture, subjects Scott has given his life to studying and teaching.
