The instrumental groups are also open to public participation offering musicians of all ages a chance to keep up the skills.

Special Department Information
Performing groups require a basic level of musical knowledge and a desire to raise that level.

Transfer Opportunities 
Applied music classes in voice, piano, brass, woodwinds, and the performing group credits transfer as music classes and will apply toward the requirements of a music majors at most 4-year institutions.

Employment Opportunities
The offerings of the CLC Music Department serve to enrich the lives of the students at CLC through the performing groups, applied music lessons, and appreciation classes. They also afford the student who has not made up his or her mind about a music major the opportunity to see if a degree in music is what one wishes to purse. The Music Industry class gives the students a taste of several possible careers in music including radio broadcasting, performing, recording, retail management and education. The Audio Recording class trains students on digital software which is the standard platform for the recording industry. Several of our students have gone on to find employment in these fields through contacts made during their time at CLC.
