CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Music: Commercial

Associate in Applied Arts Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0274  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

The Music: Commercial Program has been designed to focus on today's music in pop and jazz idioms.  It is a first step toward a professional career in commercial music, such as studio engineer, band manager or performer.  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 performance 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.

 

This is a selective admission program.  In order to be considered as a candidate for this program, students must meet basic admission requirements beyond those required for admission to the college.
