Program Description

This program is designed to create a solid musical foundation in our students enabling them to transfer into four-year colleges and universities to pursue a baccalaureate degree in music. The program is also an appropriate course of study for individuals preparing for one of the many careers in music which do not require a baccalaureate degree or for personal enrichment. Skill enhancement and depth are provided by course work in applied music performance ensembles, music theory, music literature, keyboard, computer music composition, and private lessons. Students have the opportunity to broaden the scope of their classroom education by participation in performance groups including the Concert Choir, Show Choir, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra, and chamber ensembles.
