MUS-AS - Music
NYSED Program Code
The A.S. degree in Music provides rigorous training in music to prepare students for transfer into BA and BFA programs. Music students complete an intensive four semester sequence in music theory, three semesters of sight singing and ear training classes and a specialized music history class. All students are required to achieve a basic level of proficiency in piano, as well as complete four semesters of ensembles (two of which must be chorus). Students receive four semesters of private instruction in either voice, piano, percussion or saxophone, performing in convocations, studio classes and in end-of-semester juries for the faculty.
