The LAVC Music Department provides a dynamic environment for the exploration of the complete musician / entrepreneur – performer, composer, educator, promoter, producer. We offer a complete set of courses in performance, history, theory, performance ensembles, commercial music, recording arts, and general education. We offer a two-year Music A.A. degree, a two-year Commercial Music A.A., a two-year Music AAT (music transfer degree), and five Commercial Music Certificates. Our dedicated faculty and staff specialize in hands-on attention and bring a wealth of real-world experience into the classroom.

 

The LAVC Music Department maintains partnerships with various community organizations: The American Guitar Society, The American Society of Music Arrangers & Composers, House of Blues Music Forward Foundation, and Education Through Music - Los Angeles. These partnerships provide free seminars and networking for LAVC Music students. Please visit their websites for further information and watch the bulletin boards in the Music Department for upcoming events.
