About the Program
CCD offers music students unique opportunities. You can take private instruction in piano, voice, guitar, woodwinds, strings, songwriting and composition; practice in private rooms with pianos in the art 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, you can create, record, and even notate original compositions and arrangements. You 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.
