​About Music Department


Santa Ana College offers music training for experienced musicians and beginners. We schedule classes for day and evening students. Also, for maximum skill development, we provide practice rooms and music labs at least 52 hours a week, Monday through Friday.

Beginning music students have a choice of various keyboard, voice, and instrumental classes. For students seriously committed to our program, we provide lessons for those who qualify by audition. A student can study classical, contemporary pop, and jazz playing styles.

Santa Ana College ensembles include Concert Chorale, Chamber Singers, Vocal Jazz Workshop, Jazz Ensemble, Latin Jazz Band, Mariachi, Guitar Ensemble, Chamber Symphony and Concert Band; others are formed to serve particular students' needs.

We encourage non-majors-as well as music majors-to take our theory, musicianship, and electronic music classes. Following successful completion of the two-year music study plan and required general education courses, music majors can earn an Associate of Arts degree and can transfer to a four-year university to complete a baccalaureate degree.​​​
