CLASSES BEGIN AUGUST 18th!
Learn to Read Music! New classes in Musicianship (Music 121-124 ) provide a foundation for reading music at sight. This four-semester course replaces the old 2A and 2C classes. It is highly recommended that these classes be taken in order, as they are both challenging and progressive.
Courses in the Laney College Music Department are designed to fulfill the needs of Music Majors, professional musicians, and those whose interest is vocational or recreational. Additionally, we offer classes that fulfill Arts and Humanities G.E. requirements for all majors* (see below). Students are encouraged to contact the Music Department Chair for specific guidance when planning to transfer to a four-year institution in this major. A new AA-Transfer degree (pending approval) will be launched in Fall 2014 along with the revised local AA in Music. See Degree Requirements page for more details.
