Music Course and Degree Information

Degree Information:

Lane's Music, Dance and Theatre Arts Department offers a complete range of lower-division (freshman and sophomore) courses in music—everything needed by students intending to transfer to a four-year college or university and major in music, and by students intending to meet their needs entirely at Lane, with or without a degree. Whatever the goal of music studies, one of the Transfer Plans suggested in the Music Transfer Plan link below —or some modification of it—will be appropriate.

This curriculum is designed for the student who intends to complete requirements for an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree and transfer to a four-year university with a major in music. Detailed information about the AAOT can be found in the Degrees and Certificates section of the catalog.

Music Technology and Production

A new degree is now being offered, Music Technology and Production. The music technology associate of applied science degree is designed to meet the training and experience needs of new college students, current industry professionals and artists who work with recording equipment, recording studios, and music technology equipment. The program also includes a robust emphasis on musicianship, including one year of music theory, lessons and performance experience. This AAS degree covers essential skills used in the audio world and provides hands on experience with state of the art hardware and software. The experience and skills will allow graduates to more easily attain positions in the industry or assist them in starting their own small businesses. The foundation of musicianship and music theory will also allow motivated graduates to further their studies at a number of universities and colleges that offer music technology or electronic music undergraduate degrees, such as University of Oregon and Northwest Christian University.

Included also are independent study options and a variety of private lessons. Contact the music department for further details.
