The Music Program
If your interest is music, Oklahoma City Community College is the place for you. Our two-year Associate Degree program in music develops skills in important areas such as theory, performance, and individual and group applied music. After completing your Associate Degree, you'll be able to transfer to a four- year college or university and continue your education as a junior.
At Oklahoma City Community College, you’ll study in a state-of -the-art facility that features a 1,000-seat performance hall with spectacular acoustics and a brand-new (Sept. 2023) speaker array. There are 24-track digital and 32-track analog recording facilities, a music lab, a music library, and practice and teaching studios. Students perform on our Steinway 9’ concert grand piano, and there’s a Steinway 6’ baby grand piano in the music lab. Most importantly, the music program is taught by passionate music educators with decades of experience that are some of the finest performers in the region.
As a music student at Oklahoma City Community College, you'll have a variety of opportunities to gain experience through performing. Groups participate in activities both on and off campus throughout the year. Currently, College sponsored performing groups include:
Comprised of students, faculty and staff, the Guitar Ensemble performs interpretations of classical music arranged for guitar. Performances are scheduled throughout the year at a variety of events. Membership is by audition.

The Jazz Ensemble has recently performed at the SWOSU Jazz Festival in Weatherford, Oklahoma, and the Jazz Education Network’s conference in Dallas, Texas.
