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 A.A. degrees and a variety of Certificates of Achievement. For Degree Requirements see the current Laney College Catalog or visit a counselor. Music Majors, please contact the department chair, John Reager.

NEW…Music Certificates of Achievement. Whether or not you are pursuing an Associate’s Degree, you may be eligible for one or more certificates: Jazz, Music Theory, Musicianship, Music History, Music Industry Studies, and the catch-all “Music” Certificate of Achievement. Classes can count toward multiple awards including the AA degree, so you can collect them all without repeating courses.
