When working toward an AA-T in Music, you must learn many facets of music in your courses including music theory, ear training/musicianship, ensemble performance and solo performance (vocal or instrumental). You will also explore music history and music technology as part of this major. Transferring to a CSU campus, you may work toward completing a bachelor’s degree in general music or may choose to branch into other related fields. Music majors vary from campus to campus and your exact path will depend on the offerings at the CSU campus you are admitted to. Although music training develops critical thinking and teamwork skills that would be valuable in any profession, some careers for music graduates are performing, teaching, conducting, music production (recording) and composing/arranging.
