The Music Department prepares students with a foundation for a career in music, while providing educational enrichment and cultural opportunities for the college and the greater community.
The music department moved into its beautiful new building in the fall of 2013. The programmatic needs of the department are fulfilled with a new concert hall, specialized instrumental, choral, and percussion rehearsal halls, a recording suite, classrooms, practice rooms, faculty studios, and a fleet of new Yamaha pianos, including the 9-foot cfx and a C5 Disklavier. Seven full-time and 12 part-time faculty are dedicated to teaching and advising music students to achieve their goals. Casper College is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) (www.arts-accredit.org).
Because there are nearly 50 music majors, students at Casper College receive a great deal of individual attention. Perhaps the greatest advantage is the variety of performing ensembles available to all college students, who do not have to compete with upperclassmen to perform in their favorite groups. Casper College offers the Associate of Arts in Music and the Associate of Fine Arts in Performance or Music Education.
