Program Overview

The goal of the Music emphasis of the Associate in Arts degree in Fine Arts is to provide a comprehensive two-year program that prepares the student to transfer to a baccalaureate-granting institution. Classes are small and faculty will nurture development of musicianship in order for all students to reach their potential. 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.
