CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Music

Associate in Applied Arts Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0270  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

The Music Program enables students to transfer to a four-year institution after completing studies in music theory, piano and applied lessons.  In addition to academic music classes, the curriculum includes private training in an instrument, performances with fine ensembles, and introduction to computers and music.  Emphasis is placed on integrating skills acquisition with performing opportunities.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.
