Music Industry Studies

Program Overview:

Do you have a passion for music and want to break into the music industry? The Music Industry Studies program can prepare you for a range of career paths in areas such as music management, audio production, and disc jockey techniques.

If working in the music industry is music to your ears, this program can offer a broad background in music management, production, and entrepreneurship activities and provide you a strategic understanding of commercial music — as both an art and a profession. If your goal is to work in audio production, the program will give you hands-on experience in audio engineering and teach you how to apply the music and sound concepts involved in recording, live sound reinforcement, and sound design. It can also train you in disc jockey techniques to give you the technical skills to begin working as a live performance DJ.

Whichever path in the music industry you choose to follow, the Music Industry Studies program can make it happen, so start your journey today.

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.


Music Performance

Program Overview:

Have you ever envisioned yourself attending music school and learning how to soar as a musician, or how to perfect your craft and grow as a performer? Our Music Performance program will help you hone your skills while preparing you to transfer to a four-year institution by meeting selective admission criteria for programs, such as the Bachelor of Music — where you’ll get the chance to audition. Areas of emphasis include choral, instrumental, guitar, and popular music performance.

The program’s instructors will teach you how to critically analyze music to understand how music composition has changed over time, according to historical, cultural, and stylistic contexts. They will also teach you how to perform with appropriate tone quality, pitch, rhythm, expression, and articulation. Finally, you’ll learn how to use self-evaluation, critical feedback, and aural diagnosis to improve your performance in both solo and group settings.

If you’ve dreamed of music school or performing as a professional, consider becoming part of the Music Performance program today.
