Program Description 

Have you ever wanted to sing as a soloist or with a choir, play in a band or even lead a musical group? Maybe you are more interested in writing music, or even recording and producing. If so, ACC’s Music Program may be for you. We offer private lessons in voice, percussion, guitar, woodwinds, brass, and piano and we have four performing ensembles that you could join. Recording classes are also available for those who want to learn what happens behind the scenes. Also note that you do not have to be a music major to take advantage of these classes.

If you are interested in majoring in music, the music department at ACC offers a program that will allow you to transfer to complete a bachelor’s degree in performance, composition, musicology, or music education.

Career Opportunities

Many opportunities are available for musicians. You can pursue a solo career in the classical, musical theater, or pop genres; you can become a member of a performing ensemble like an opera chorus, or symphony orchestra; or you can freelance, taking gigs or doing session work for radio, TV, or film. You might also be interested in teaching music either privately or in a school or college. Music teachers are now in great demand and schedules and salaries are highly competitive.
