What Is Music?
The study of music at Perimeter College helps students develop foundational skills in the classroom and on stage. Led by professional faculty, students learn theory and performance techniques and gain experience in the classical and jazz traditions through solo and ensemble performances.
Why Study Music?
The guided pathway in Music at Perimeter College has a proven record of preparing students for success in a variety of music-related fields. An artist faculty with a substantial background in performing, conducting, composition and arranging empowers students to critically analyze and effectively perform music of various styles and genres. A rich and varied calendar of recitals and concerts provides them with opportunities to perfect their own performing skills and to experience the skill of faculty and guest artist performers.
A note on pathways: A pathway is an advising guide to help students prepare for their intended bachelor’s degree major. By following the course of study outlined in the appropriate Associate of Arts or Associate of Science pathway, students will have the necessary prerequisite courses to continue in their chosen disciplines. A pathway is not a major and will not be represented on the diploma.
After completing the requisite coursework, students earn an Associate of Science degree and may transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree in fields such as music performance, music education, composition, music therapy, arts administration and audio engineering.
