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.
