Dream. Flourish. Succeed.



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. Laney College now offers three separate music degrees:  Associate in Arts for Transfer degree, Associate in Arts degree (local and also transferable), and the brand new Music Industry Studies A.A. See Degree Requirements page for more details. For more information, contact the department chair.

Learn to Read Music! New classes in Music Skills (Music 121-124) provide a foundation for reading music at sight, music dictation and ear-training. It is highly recommended that these classes be taken in order, as they are both challenging and progressive.
