Special Curriculum Completion Requirements: Applied music students: Tuition fees are payable to the College. Studio charges are payable to applied music instructors. Piano proficiency skills are required of all Music majors.
Total credits for the A.A. Degree in Liberal Arts with a Specialization in Music = 62.
