Music @ KCC


The music curriculum at Kellogg Community College is designed to create a strong foundation for students planning on transferring to a four-year program or to improve as a performer. Study of particular styles of music over time offers students the opportunity to improve listening skills, appreciate teamwork and to impact emotional states. Study of music provides students with vocal and instrumental performance experience as well as appreciation for social and historical musical experiences that connect generations and cultures.

At Kellogg Community College, our music programming is built on the cornerstone of creativity and collaboration. Our students are encouraged to find their best musical selves through artistic exploration. It is here where you will develop the skills necessary to become a successful and well rounded musician. While a student at Kellogg Community College, the course offerings are vast, including courses in Music Theory, Aural Comprehension, Piano Class, Voice Class, Conducting, Music History, Music Fundamentals, Music Appreciation, Music Education courses, Vocal and Instrumental Ensembles and Individualized Music Lessons ( available on all major orchestral instruments, piano and voice) with our artist faculty.
