Music

The Music program is designed with two ends in mind—to prepare students to transfer to music major programs at four-year institutions, and to develop the skills and knowledge to pursue activities in the music profession. The A.A.-T in Music for Transfer provides students with preparation in the areas of music theory, musicianship, individual performance (applied music), and ensemble performance. These skills and abilities can also be used to integration into other majors, such as digital media, early childhood and audio technology.
