Liberal Studies, Music Option
The goal of the Music option of the Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Studies is to provide a comprehensive two-year program that prepares the student to transfer to a baccalaureate-granting institution.

Private lessons are offered in piano, voice, guitar, strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. There are also opportunities for students to perform as part of various ensembles. Foundation courses in theory and harmony are required.
Specific program objectives include:
- A solid foundation in the beginning four semesters of music harmony and aural theory necessary to transfer successfully to a baccalaureate degree granting institution.
- Applied course work in primary and secondary performing areas and in the history and literature of music.
- A basic general education foundation of English, history, government, science, math, and liberal arts appropriate for students transferring to a four-year institution.
