Graduate Perspective

I studied under many excellent music teachers at PCC. Their clear explanations of concepts in theory, as well as their training in sight singing and dictation, have enabled me to better understand music. Through the years, they built on what I knew, instructing me further through lecture, demonstration, and practice until I was equipped to do what may have once seemed impossible. My private lesson teacher assisted me in polishing music for performance, improving my own arranging ability, and developing my skills on instruments other than my proficiency.
