Program: Music

Overview

Music

The Music program at Long Beach City College is designed to provide students with the technique and repertoire for a successful audition into a university major program, and the coursework necessary to complete core academic courses required for a lower-division major program. The curricular components needed to achieve these goals are music theory, musicianship, piano, and the applied performance program, which requires an audition for entrance into the program. The ultimate career goals after transfer would be a bachelor’s degree in music performance, education, composition, or musicology (theory or history), preparing one for a teaching or performance career.
