What will I learn?
Expand your passion for music! Our students enjoy a wide variety of music and are
interested in an in-depth study of music and how to apply it to their own performance.
Students in this program learn about written and aural music theory and expand beyond basic knowledge of instruments, styles of music and music history.
Students may participate in LCCC ensembles including: Collegiate Chorale, Cantorei, jazz band and wind ensembles. Students also have the opportunity to participate in solo and chamber performance opportunities, and local and national collaborations and conferences.
