Collin College Department of Music

Welcome Music Students!

Music Department Mission Statement
The Department of Music Field of Study Program trains students in the skills necessary for successful transfer to a four-year institution in order to complete a baccalaureate degree. We do this by focusing on the student as an individual, a member of a team, and a contributor to the community of musicians and music educators.

• As performers students learn to present themselves professionally while performing standard music repertoire.
• As members of Collin music ensembles, students learn to work in groups towards a shared musical goal of realizing a public performance of ensemble repertoire.

Ultimately, the Department of Music Program enriches the local and regional community by training skilled musicians as music teachers and by serving as a regional hub of music activities hosting faculty, student and professional recitals as well as supporting other community activities including music festivals and educational organizations.
