Overview

Music as a career today is an exciting, challenging, and diversified field. The well-educated professional who is capable of responding to varied musical demands has a decided advantage over the individual with lesser qualifications in the keen competition for those desirable positions that offer financial as well as aesthetic rewards.

The Five Towns College Jazz/Commercial Music program has been organized to enable its graduates to prepare for careers as instrumental and vocal performers, music arrangers and composers, private music teachers, and music store and studio operators.

An intensive schedule of ensemble workshops, coordinated with composition, arranging and repertory courses, enables students to perform, analyze, and evaluate their work in professional-level laboratory sessions. This thorough training is accomplished through a carefully structured program taught by a faculty of experienced educators and professional musicians.

Graduates may pursue careers immediately upon graduation from college or transfer and continue their studies towards a baccalaureate degree and more advanced professional training.

Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree

The Associate in Applied Science Degree is designed for students preparing for entry into the business or professional world directly after completion of their course of study. These programs include both professional skills and liberal arts/general education courses.
