Whether you're interested in playing an instrument or singing in front of an audience, laying down tracks in a recording studio or teaching music to others, Chaffey College's music program can get you started. We can prepare you to transfer to a four-year college or university and pursue careers in music, music education, commercial music and related fields. You'll learn the major theories and artistic movements in music from the ancient to the modern world, and evaluate the influences that social, political and religious institutions have in the creation of music. The program covers technical skills and concepts and technologies involved in the creation of music. We'll teach you music history, theory disciplines and practices. The program emphasizes critical thinking in the creation, analysis and interpretation of music.
The music program offers an Associate of Arts in Music for Transfer (AA-T), an Associate of Science in Commercial Music (AS), and a Certificate of Recording Arts Technician.
