Attention: Alan Goodman, Music Instructional Assistant
The Music Department at San Diego Mesa College offers over 60 active courses, providing a lower division curriculum comparable to those in four-year institutions. We are training students to transfer to four year universities as well as to take part in the growing entertainment field, the largest industry in California. The Music Department has demanding and rewarding classes in theory, electronic music, voice, and jazz that provide non-music and music majors the opportunity to learn about and create music. Since 1995 we have awarded $30,000 in scholarships to music majors transferring to 4-year institutions. If you care about music and want a superior music education, San Diego Mesa College is the best choice.
