Students may study piano, voice, and guitar privately or in a class setting. Music Theory, Ear Training, and Music Fundamentals are designed to aid the student in reading and writing music.
Several ensembles are available to all students. Singers, a non-auditioned chorus, performs in the fall for the annual Madrigal Feast and performs in the spring concert. Chamber Singers, an auditioned chorus, performs for numerous functions on and off campus, and takes a tour in the spring semester. Admittance into this organization will be achieved through audition and a personal interview with the director. An instrumental ensemble is open to all students with high school band experience. Membership in the instrumental ensemble is by audition.
The music department is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and software and may be used by students enrolled in approved classes or working under the direct supervision of a faculty member. This facility is available to music students for word processing, MIDI projects, practicing, and other such work.
Students who are planning to major in music should select courses with the approval of a departmental advisor in order to fulfill the requirements of the four-year institution to which they plan to transfer. Additional fees could be charged for private instruction courses.
The 3-hour credit course is required for students who must take at least one remedial course. Students who are not required to take a remedial course may take the 3-hour credit course. In both situations, the courses (1-hour or 3-hour) count toward electives.
