About the Program
Community College of Denver (CCD) offers music students unique opportunities. They can take private instruction in piano, voice, guitar, woodwinds, strings, song writing and composition; practice in private rooms with pianos in the Arts Building on the Auraria Campus and perform in the King Center recital and concert halls.
Music students also use keyboards and computers in the music technology lab in the King Center. With the lab’s specialized computers and software, students can create, record, even notate original compositions and arrangements. Students can also use this technology to learn even more about music theory, ear training and music history.
An associate degree in music from CCD is a path to various careers in the music industry including the performing arts, education, music technology, music business and music engineering. CCD offers a two-year transferable degree to other four-year schools in Colorado.
