What You'll Study in Our Performing Arts-Music Program
With DCC's Music track, you'll focus on voice, composition or an instrument within a larger arts curriculum. You'll take private lessons, but also perform in large groups and staged musicals
Our Music curriculum is designed to help you successfully audition for a range of four-year music programs — education, performance, studio production, business, music therapy and more — and in an array of styles from classical to jazz.
You'll hone your skills in the Hudson Valley, a musical hub that has inspired generations of treasured American songwriters. DCC is also a train ride away from the legendary music venues of New York City.VIEW FULL CATALOG
