Program Overview

The music major fulfills lower-division requirements for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university culminating in employment in the areas of music teaching, music performance and many other related fields of the music industry. In addition, the associate in arts degree will benefit those students seeking employment in the commercial music industry (e.g., merchandising, club-date performance, recording, church music positions, public recreation departments, private teaching). All music majors are required to take one performance class each semester.  

The graduate of the AA program in music will:

  • Analyze and notate music using traditional Western music notation, theory and harmony.
  • Perform as a member of an instrumental or vocal ensemble.

"I believe Hancock is the greatest community college out there for so many reasons. The counselors got me on track, and the instructors go out of their way to help. Because I am doing well in math and science classes for the first time in my life, I will be able to pursue a career as an environmental engineer. I will be able to find viable solutions to real world problems because of my time here."
