PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This program, designed for transfer to bachelor’s degree programs in music at other colleges and universities, provides students with a comprehensive foundation in music. Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared for further college-level study in music.

Students receive a rich perspective of music through exposure to many artistic and culturally diverse styles. The department offers free public concerts, hosts guest performers and speakers, and sponsors an annual jazz festival, all of which develop a strong bond with the surrounding community.

Students enter the Music Program through audition. Those students demonstrating significant potential, but with limited background in music reading or performance technique, will be placed in preparatory classes designed to develop the skills needed for college-level work.

Holyoke Community College is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
