Music Maps

These are suggested classes to take on your journey as a Music major, a Music minor upon transfer, or if you're a student majoring in something else but love Music. These map recommendations are suggestions only and do not include GE requirements. Please see a SBVC counselor to create an Ed Plan, and check out the AA-T and AA in Music for specific degree requirements. Some courses not included within the Music degrees are highly recommended and included in these plans, such as piano and music history. Whether you're thinking about becoming a Music educator, performer, Music therapist, Music producer, or otherwise, a Music degree from San Bernardino Valley College will be highly valuable to you! For more information about Music classes or our Music degrees, contact Professor Margaret Worsley: mworsley@valleycollege.edu
