CURRICULAR GUIDE

Music Commercial Performance
Associate in Applied Arts Degree

Curriculum Code: 0274  (Effective Fall 1999 - Summer 2004)

The Music Commercial Performance Program has been designed to focus on today's
music in pop and jazz idioms.  It is a first step toward a professional career
in commercial music, such as studio engineer, band manager or performer.  In
addition to academic music classes, the curriculum includes training in a
private instrument, performances with fine ensembles, and introduction to
computers and music.  Emphasis is placed on integrating skills acquisition with
performance opportunities.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all
colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or
counselor before enrolling in any course.

This is a selective admission program.  In order to be considered as a candidate
for this program, students must meet basic admission requirements beyond those
required for admission to the college.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific coursework in mathematics.
