  • Endless possibilities

    At SPC, you can:

    A music "major" emphasizes music courses as part of their Associate in Arts degree so they can transfer to a four-year college, university or conservatory to complete a bachelor’s degree in Music or Music Education. To be designated as a music major, a student will:

    • Pass an audition in the principal performing area and enroll in applied music in that area.
    • Perform in one student recital each term and attend the other recitals.
    • Perform for a jury exam at the end of each term.
    • Participate in a major college ensemble in the performing area (band or chorus) during each term in which the student is also receiving lessons as a music major.
    • Enroll in Music Theory (or Fundamentals of Music, if needed for remediation).
    • Enroll in secondary applied piano. If piano is the primary instrument, any other applied music area may be selected as a secondary proficiency.

    This two-year A.A. degree is equivalent to the first two years of four-year university music schools and consists of four areas of instruction:

    • Music Theory
    • Applied Music lessons in the primary performance proficiency area
    • Applied Music lessons in the secondary performance area
    • Ensembles
  • A liberal arts education with courses in Music can serve as the foundation for advanced degrees and professions such as dancing, choreography, musical performance, producing, directing and teaching.
