Chemeketa’s music curriculum offers a comprehensive range of foundational courses in both performance and general music. Our music performance classes include choir, band, and orchestra, as well as individual applied lessons in piano, voice, and most of the traditional string, wind, and percussion instruments, as well as conducting and composition. Courses in Music Theory, Aural Skills, Music Appreciation, and Music Fundamentals provide a basis for the understanding and appreciation of music.

Many music courses can be used to fulfill the Arts and Letters requirement of the Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) and the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT), as well as the Associate of General Studies degree (AGS). See Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) Degree Requirements  and Associate of General Studies Degree Requirements (AGS)  of this catalog for a complete listing. By completing a prescribed set of music courses, students will also be prepared to transfer as a music major to any of the Oregon state colleges. Oregon state colleges and universities offering Bachelor of Arts and/or Bachelor of Science degrees in Music are Eastern Oregon University, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, University of Oregon, and Western Oregon University. As a student, you are responsible for learning the departmental requirements of the school to which you plan to transfer. Also, you should make early contact with an advisor at the institution to which you plan to transfer to learn of any possible changes in this academic area.

We strongly recommend developing a term-by-term plan of study. Contact the Music Program Chair or consult with Chemeketa Advising and First Year Programs staff if you plan to transfer as a music major. Questions regarding Chemeketa’s music offerings may be directed to the Liberal Arts office at 503.399.5184 or the Music Program Chair at 503.365.4616.
