The North Lake College Music Department is expanding its offerings of performing ensembles and digital music to better serve the needs of the community. We continue to offer coursework in music theory, musicianship and jazz improvisation for all levels of musicians, as well as general education Music Appreciation and entry-level courses in piano, guitar and voice open to all students. Private music lessons are also available for students participating in ensembles.
Our music program provides a broad base of experience to build basic musicianship skills with classes that will transfer to any Texas public college as the first two years in a baccalaureate-level music degree. Transferring students must satisfy the competency and proficiency requirements of the receiving institution.
If you are working toward a four-year music degree or wish to have music as a minor, consult with the full-time music faculty for degree plan advising specific to your musical interests.
Students enrolled in a 1-credit-hour MUEN course can qualify to enroll in 30 minute applied private lessons. Visit our Applied Music page for further details.
