Welcome to the Cabrillo Music Department.
The music curriculum provides a program for the student who wishes to (1) pursue an advanced degree in music, (2) become a professional musician, (3) prepare for a career in public school teaching, (4) broaden a general knowledge of music, or (5) develop performance skills. Students will be given the theory, keyboard, and sight-reading skills necessary to transfer to a four-year college music curriculum, where they will be expected to pass proficiency exams in each of these areas. Participation in at least one principal performance group is highly recommended for each semester.
Opportunities for other careers in commercial music are found in music publishing, composition, nightclub entertainment, dance bands, backup singing groups, lead singing, recording studios, music sales, music retailing, librarian work, and management. The requisite background for these careers is found in the basic music major curricula plus optional specialized training courses.
