Commercial Music

The commercial music curriculum is designed to provide the basic skills to equip the student to work in the field of popular commercial music.  The curriculum meets all requirements for the Associate of Applied Arts degree.

Faculty advisors guide students in choosing from a broad menu of private instrument lessons and ensemble classes. These classes are open to all SPC students; but those seeking degrees under the Creative Arts Department may be subject to additional curricular requirements, including completion of a Capstone Experience.

Students seeking the Commercial Music associate degree, Commercial Music Certificate or Entertainment Business Certificate must satisfactorily participate in a full-length televised public performance (Music Festival) during their last semester in school. The students and faculty of the Creative Arts Department produce these full-length productions each semester.
