The music department at Cañada College provides a variety of courses to introduce students to the many ways of knowing music. The selection of courses in the music major gives a student several different creative outlets and prepares an open mind for the wide array of possibilities in the rapidly changing music world. Courses focus on the intersection of music and social contexts of its production. Note that this major does not specifically support transfer into most four-year degree music programs, which require ensemble performance experience and other courses available in the district.
