The Music Program of Temple College offers a wide selection of opportunities for students. Students who have majors and minors outside of music are encouraged to participate in music courses, ensembles, and applied instruction for a better perspective on the arts and improved self-expression.
A full two-year program is offered for both the music major and minor who will pursue a bachelor’s degree in music. In addition to the traditional music curriculum, the Music Department offers selected courses in commercial music.
Music scholarships are available to deserving students, regardless of major. Interested students should contact the Division of Fine Arts, located in the Mary Alice Marshall Performing Arts Center for audition times and details.
Exceptions: In the case of non-piano majors, individual instruction in piano can be substituted for Class Piano courses with the permission of the instructor. The student will be required to take 4 hours of individual instruction in lieu of class piano.
Class piano is not required of piano majors. Piano majors are required to have 4 hours of individual instruction on a different secondary instrument, jazz piano, or voice in lieu of class piano and keyboard skills.
Students should check with each college or university regarding their transfer policy of core curriculum courses.
