Music Program Main

Music program at CPCC offers a solid foundation in theory, history, and performance, and also enables students with a wide variety of interests to work and study together. The faculty are dedicated teachers and accomplished musicians. The facilities are first-rate, and our connection to the Charlotte arts community is strong. Whether your interests are in performance, recording technology, or preparation for transfer to a four-year program, CPCC provides the classes and skills you need.

Undecided? This is the place to come to explore, discuss, examine, and create. We offer small classes, ensembles and other performance opportunities, and faculty whose own interests range from 20th century classical music to jazz to opera and early music. They are performers and composers, as well. Most importantly, they are interested in your musical development.

The curriculum in CPCC’s Music program (A10200 AFA in Music or A10200D AFA Pre-Major in Music) is the equivalent of the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program and transfer is easy. In addition to the music degree program CPCC general education program is mandated by the college to complete the requirements for the Associate in Fine Arts.
