Program Description

Music is the study of the language of sound and its effect on the minds and souls of creator, performer and listener. It is one of the few academic disciplines to deal extensively with the development of the creative side of personhood; in that sense it is one of the most wholly “human” of the humanities. The creative problem-solving skills and discipline of music studies prepare students for a wide range of life's activities and pursuits.

The Music Department offers a wide range of classes, providing opportunities for transfer music majors, music for general studies students, and the opportunity for student and community musicians of all skill levels to participate in a wide variety performance ensembles. For course descriptions, see Section IX of VVC Catalog.
