Music

The Field

Music allows us to express thoughts, ideas and emotions through vocal and instrumental sounds. In order to succeed in the field of music, students should demonstrate a curiosity for how we can affect, and better understand, the world around us through musical expression. 

The Music Program at Skyline College

The courses of the Music Program at Skyline College are specifically designed to fill the needs of beginners, students seeking a career in the music business or who are preparing to transfer to a university, and individuals who simply want to enhance their musical enjoyment.

In addition to a wide variety of courses, we offer three Associate of Arts Degrees in Music, two of which are specifically geared for students looking to transfer to a four-year institution.

Please note, students may be asked to audition or test for placement in sequential courses. 

Career Outlook

Through performance, creative activity, research, and exploration of the art of music, the Music Program prepares students for transfer to a four-year institution and for careers as performers, composers, teachers, producers and more.

The State of California Employment Development Department provides an online Occupational Guide that provides helpful job descriptions, job outlooks and wages, and qualification requirements for a wide variety of careers. Use this guide to find more information about a career that may interest you.
